RE: LoopIV sysex, etc.

Yes!  Being able to configure a preset to use a pedal when you don't yet
have one plugged in is very handy.

But let me explain my question a little better...

These two scenarios lead to the same situation:
1) Plug in a feedback pedal.  Set Loop/Delay to "Flip."  Now unplug the
pedal.  Press PARAMETERS then LOOP/DELAY.  You'll see "noP" displayed as 
Loop/Delay setting.  (What dat mean?)

2) Without a feedback pedal plugged in, send a sysex message to cofigure
Loop/Delay of preset 0 to "Flip".  Now press PARAMETERS then LOOP/DELAY.
You'll see "noP" displayed as the Loop/Delay setting.

So at this point, do a long press of PARAMETERS to return to play mode.  
RECORD.  EDP starts recordings.  Tap RECORD. EDP stops recording and
initiates playback.  But what Loop/Delay setting was actually used?  I 
tell from the front panel because it shows as "noP".

The mode is Flip, but will not work without the pedal plugged in.

A sysex message can patch the EDP into any of the modes that require a
pedal, without a pedal actually plugged in.

That lets you create presets that may or may not reflect how you currently
have the footswitches & pedals configured.
