Interesting idea. This is why I have two EDPs. I use the midiclock to
synchronize them. I lay down the "base pattern" in one and the "frills"
in the other. Then I mute/stop/turn-down the "master" EDP.
To me, what you're describing is a sort of "multi-track" looper. I
know, for example, I could never duplicate a part accurately enough to
"subtract" it out. Of course, any artifacts from the process might be
interesting of themselves.
