RE: Noisy EDP

Re: Reverb.  My suggestion is to be a bit careful in adding reverb with
every overdub.  Can get a bit muddy sounding.  But, that may be an effect
you want for a certain piece.

Re:  Optimal signal path.  What I found is that the confusion ended when i
got really clear as to how i wanted to use the EDP.  Before that, I was
confused as to what to plug into what.  Now, i've turned my confusion to
other more confusing things.

Oh, make sure you have the "unity gain" thing down pat.  If not, you won't
really get a good listen to the current routing.
