RE: Dumping and Loading EDP samples

I've never did an echoplex dump, but with other samplers the channels of 
both units must be set to the same.  Also, sys ex must be turned on.  
Typically when one unit initiates the transfer the other should see it 
automatically though there are some samplers out there that must be in a 
wait state mode.

Hope this  helps and makes sense.

It is my understanding that SysEx data is not channelized - no conecpt
of MIDI channels for SysEx as there is for note and controller data.
So if Sample Dump data is a subset of SysEx then the EDP should accept
a sample dump regardless of it's midi channel setting.  Likewise, when
it sends a Sample Dump it sould be received at the other other without
regards to MIDI channel settings.

If I'm wrong please correct me (but gently).
