Re: LONG LIVE the EDP and the LOOPERLATIVE was: edp R.I.P ...long live the looperlative

that's right! Of course,  but I'm quite happy with Mobius as a back-up 
software looper...which also has 8 separate loops like the Looperlative. 
software things is just a whole new can of worms for me...not being able 
run all my VST effects at the same time, etc....it's complicated and gives 
me a headache.

With respect Kris, and please forgive me if I've forgotten details of your
previous posts, but in the meantime you could have at least three stereo
instances of sooperlooper going to replace your edp's.  Per was good enough
to turn me on to this, and I've been happy ever since.  I would never sell
my edp's and would love to try a looperlative, but at least regarding your
number one concern below, I've shared it and been very happy at how I was
able to solve it, thanks to jesse's program.

All best,
