Thanks Per I'll give that a go,  I've only really scratched the  
surface with what this machine can do but the patches I've created so  
far are making liberal use of the expression pedal controller and the  
Fireworx handles clock really well so I slave it from my LP-1. I  
checked out the 2290 Walrus patch that you suggested Rainer, and it  
seems to have An ADSR modifier attached to the delay output and then  
an envelope detect modifier controlling the ADSR trigger, Now my head  
is really spinning.....brain hurts.... I don't know enough about  
ADSR's or Envelope modifiers to understand what is going on, but I'll  
twiddle with it and see if it creates the desired ducking or "dynamic"  
delay effect I'm looking for. One would think that as inventors of the  
original 2290 with its first on the market ducking delay capability,  
they would label a Patch "2290 delay"...2290 Walrus, what's that  
supposed to mean? We are the Egg Men? Koo Koo Ka Joob? As for the  
manual, its not much help in English, so I'm feeling my way through it  
as I have time, It is really great sounding and though I initially  
wanted  an Eclipse, it was more than I wanted to spend, and I was able  
to get the Fireworx used for under $600. It will be a long time before  
I exhaust its possibilities.
Thanks for the tips guys
