thanks for swift responses... as usual some swift responses to your responses
What you could try is assigning Mobius functions to keys on the Ozone
and pressing them your toe or some other mechanical apparatus. But a cheap
MIDI interface is best.
yes i thought of this, but as u say... ill get an interface...
AudioMulch is one of my main testing hosts.

Hip hip hurrah!!! My favorite hosts with the edp insde.. I mean the Mobius inside... er sorry Jeff..

OK.. I dint get that.. why will setting the feedback to 127 help?

I think it is reasonable to have an option to automatically cancel
any recording mode when you change tracks.
Yes this is a Mac port issue (you probably have an Intel Mac).
> None of the speed change or pitch shift things worked
Actually speed change should have worked, but pitch shift is hosed.
change resulted in silence, until I got it back to normal... wait no
that was pitch shift... speed change crashed the bugger...
Yes, I frequently get asked for some form of compression because it is

easy to overload if you overdub a lot without reducing feedback.
think that would be good, cos I never want to HAVE to go to the
computer during a performance... WAIT, didnt the EDP do something like
back off the feedback during overdub and then back up to 100% when the
loop is closed...??

Slip has been around for a long time. I'm not sure what the Repeater
does but you can use it to slip forward to the next subcycle, cycle,
or to the loop
Yes thats basically what the Repeater did, you have 2 settings, slip by beat or slip by seconds.
By the way... is SUBCYCLE the mobius name for a cycle divided by its 8ths setting?
Shuffle is supposed to cut the loop up into pieces defined
What does "Shuffle" do? Button didnt seem to do anything.
by the 8thsPerCycle parameter then rearrange them. A sort
of coarse grained type of granular synthesis. See the
Shuffle Mode parameter for some options.
Wow coooool.. shame it didnt seem to work last night... will try again tomorrow.
AND ONE MORE QUESTION TONIGHT...
loop windowing thing in the edp is undersyandable not there, you say
you will implement it sometime, will this be switchable, cos there is
really 2 ways to UNDO when the multiply has been divided... back thru
memory (loop windowing - a combination of a cycle slip and an undo)
and undoing down to the part thats SHOULD lie below the segment you
have now divided down to.
OK 2 questions...
I read, but forgot to test, TRIM. Is that
like the repeater TRIM? Cos that was an under used and incredible
feature of that famous blue box. Unfortunately NOT accessible thru midi
stupid stupid stupid!!!! I loved (already talking about the repeater in
the past tense.. oh shit ) to trim down a loop to a second, then using
the 2 rotory encoders, quickly drag thru the whole loop from start to
finish. Problems here was that when I one end of the sample you go into
silent space, not loop back from the other end.... YOU NEED THIS
JEFF!!! especially if its possible to overdub at the same time...
CRIKEY MY HEADS EXPLODING!!!
Night night... bedtime, need to get Hilde into the big scary machine by 8:30 in the morning!!!
think its Goldfinger.. or maybe Moonraker, where BOND is tied to a
table and these green lasers are moving up toward his legs... that what
the Radiation machine looks like... including the green lasers, except
these are firing friendly beams of Joy and Happiness)
