Re: EDP Manual Organization was: The echoplex manual s......Re: The Echoplex Manual Sucks and the Guy That Wrote It Is an Idiot

Calling the writer of the manual an idiot is a little rude IMO. As a matter
of fact I must state that the EDP manaul isnīt an example of clarity and
immediate understandability (if thatīs a word) becuase the ongoing
differentiation between terms like loop, beat etc. puzzles me but this may
be due to my own personal approach to things which is a more intuitive one
(I donīt bother to think too much while I want to be creative, and
structures do have the drawback of being mostly totally different from how
Iīd organize them). Also, I miss simple troubleshooting hints (that would
for instance help me resolving the syncing problems I currently have) as
this would make a lot of things easier.
