Re: EDP Setup idea (tips please)

It is quite easy to do this. The easy thing to do is put each EDP on a 
different midi channel and control the individually.

The problem for you however, is I believe with the FCB 1010 you can only 
send midi note info on one channel. And the FCB is a little limited so it 
will only control the Echoplex with note messages. You may want to 
a better midi controller.

Another option is to use the ControlSource parameter of the Echoplex. Set 
one EDP to a low range with the parameter set to 4. Set the second one to 
64. That way they can both be on the same midi channel. The control for 
unit#1 is all in the lower range from 0-63, and the control for the second 
unit is in the higher range from 64-127.

use rhw presets availabe in LoopIV. Have one preset with sync on, and one 
preset with sync=off.
