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

This sounds interesting.

Personally, I have found using the EDP, on a practical level, very 
difficult, because I don't fully understand a lot of the definitions used 
in the manual.  It's not that the manual is bad, its just my inability to 
get my head around what's being discussed.  I wish I could understand it 
in such a way so that if I hear something in my head that I could 
accomplish with the EDP, I know how to define it so I can actually create 
it.  What I would find helpful, if at all possible, is someone creating a 
step by step how to, with audio examples, for some of the fundamental 
workings of the EDP.  This start with just a basic function and then 
gradually build on.  I feel a tutorial like this would at least provide me 
a foundation that I can build on using the manual and my own
