Re: MIDI Looping Control

Yes! The PC-1600 is great! As far as a real-time, MIDI-controllable
effects unit, I suggest looking at Ensoniq's line of FX, like the DP
series or even one of the sampler's with FX inputs. I got the SYSEX docs
from the company and program my PC-1600 to control up to six or so
parameters per effect.
