Sisi, thats what I am saying: You CAN use the pedals directly in parallel,
at the same time, because they are "open" when no switch is pressed. In
fact, the front pannel keys and the foot pedal keys are in parallel, too.
Even if you press two switches at the time, the software will hold it, as
it does if you press two keys on the same pedal board (yes, that was a hard
one to do: you can even hold Overdub and do Multiply-Record to correct loop
time, and you are back in Overdub until you release it! Kim gave the idea,
but I had to put it together %-/ ).

Did you manage to control simultaneously two machines from one pedal board?
I have done it, it takes an opertional amplifier. But its not acurate. Use

You are probably the one with the most Echoplexes in the world (I have two
to make stereo sound and an old one for programming) - so show us what is
possible !

In my vision of this stage, there was one machine, operated from several
points to make the process visible - more interesting than switching on a
drum machine program. The second machine for the second musician, at
