Another idea is to make your EDP mono looping stereo in real-time.  
I'm fond of my AKAI MFC42 filter bank for this. Check it out at  
http://www.vintagesynth.com/index2.html. The filter bank has one mono  
channel and one stereo channel. I use to connect my instrument to the  
mono channel and the EDP output to the stereo channel. Then I slap a  
midi cable between the EDP and the Akai so the filter bank can sync  
its LFO filters after the EDP tempo. You can filter both channels  
independently but the stereo channel can also be set to stereo  
movement in time with the music. When doing that you can keep the low  
frequencies at the center and the high frequencies bouncing left- 
right on any poly rhythmic related to the EDP tempo. There's a lot of  
fun with the mfc42 and they are very cheap now - at least here in  
Sweden. Seems like they flopped on the market because Akai thought  
that all DJ's should buy one, which they did not. (one of my looping  
students went and bought a "half price" mfc42 in a store right after  
checking it out at my place. It's definitely an underestimated piece  
of gear)
