Re: Triggering EDP via drum machine (SR16)

Interesting question.
I do some of this sort of stuff, building up rhythmic (or psuedo-rhythmic)
loops with the EDP with cut up loops.
I don't use a drum machine or sequencer though, it's all done with the 
(feels more like playing an instrument)

As well As Claude Voit, Andre Lafosse has used midi triggering with the 

The EDP is the only unit that's going to do anything like what you want.

It gets more complicated if you want to keep the EDP in Sync with the drum 

As long as you're using Replace and Substitute, no problem.

As long as you're quantised to cycle length, no problem

When you use Insert, and want to be UnQuantised, or 8th Note Quantised, it 
could get "interesting", as to stay in sync with incoming midi clock the 
EDP needs to have the right loop length already. The sync adjustments can 
only be small, otherwise the EDP will drift free.
However, with careful programming of the sequence it will work just fine.

good luck,

and please share some audio when you get it running.
