Like making patches using a signal processor?  (Which I can understand, in
a way - I'm not keen on them myself)

Check,,,and mate.  :)   Deep Blue would be proud....

'Reckon.   Hmmm.... that's that thread over.  Now, what next?  Maybe Kim
can tell us about foot controllers....  Hey Kim!  When's the Echoplex Quad
