Re: Fast & Trashy, Slow and Chaste

This also suggests one other thing about learning the EDP: Start slowly.
Pick a reasonably simple case and learn it well. (I recommend "Expert" mode
in Loop4 as a starting point since your loop will sustain when not
overdubbing if you don't use a pedal.) Then pick another aspect and add it
to your arsenal. Then another.

I would probably recommend setting Insert to Half Speed or Reverse when
starting out. Many of the insert and replacement techniques take more 
to get reasonable timing on and you can frustrate yourself with them if you
are still learning the basics of looping.

If you are programming a MIDI pedal, it might make sense to do it one or 
switches at a time and learn those switches well before moving on.
