Re: Input problems in EDP - Truncating volume swells.

Hello Greg,
I had the same problem and i was also advised to increase the input but
compared to other loop samplers i find the EDP not that dynamic because of
the horrible digital distortion.It can be improved though changing a couple
of resistors like i did. Ask Kim directly and he will tell you exactly 
ones to change.
Good luck!
