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 the 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. Tap RECORD. EDP starts recordings. Tap RECORD. EDP stops recording and initiates playback. But what Loop/Delay setting was actually used? I can't tell from the front panel because it shows as "noP". - Dennis Leas -----Original Message----- From: Rick Williamson [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Wednesday, August 07, 2002 1:48 AM To: Loopers-Delight@loopers-delight.com Subject: Re: LoopIV sysex, etc. > BTW: Say that I send a sysex message to set Loop/Delay to "Flip" but a > feedback pedal is not 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.
