I've been changing my EDP set-up on FCB three times but anyway,  
here's the trick I use to come up with a good set-up:

1. Put the FCB in front of you. Look at it. Don't touch it. Notice  
the the bank set-up of five pads and two pedals. This is the palette  
you are left with (at this stage, no not yet consider bank changing).

2. Think about the functions in the EDP that you want to use. Fresh  
up your memory by marking them out with a pencil in the Loop4 manual.

3. Now think about which of those functions you need to jump quickly  
between, and visualize them on neighboring pads. In your mind,  
perform some looping that makes use of those buttons. If it feels  
fluent, go on to another bunch of functions and visualize using them  
on different buttons. Find the best combination of buttons and  

4. Program it.
