BTw, plexers, it's possible to configure a Digitech RP1/10/12/20 to send CC
(I think that's what the EDP uses... whatever) _without_ changing the
onboard patch, ie you can mix pedals within a bank to either change onboard
patches, or control the EDP, or both.

It won't send patch change info without changing patch, so you can't use it
to drive your JamMan _and_ gain access to the onboard sounds in a
controllable way...
