RE: MFC10 latency

That is great to hear.  I will have to see how the MFC10 responds to the
JamMan 'module' in the G2.  But I am most concerned about the getting the
Repeater to respond well.  I think there is a TRS option on the G2 that I
can use to work around any potential latency problems with the JamMan

One more time... Is anyone using the MFC10 to control a Repeater?

I guess I'll know soon enough.

no, there is no issue with midi speed and the EDP. In fact the EDP is very
fast in responding to midi. It has a very tight real-time architecture and
is guaranteed to respond to any MIDI message within 1.5ms. In fact, it
actually responds to midi faster than it does to it's own buttons, because
we need to debounce buttons to make sure we know what is pressed. In the
case of the buttons, the echoplex response is guaranteed to be less than
3ms. Either way it is less than you will likely perceive, and less than the
accuracy you will likely have in pressing the buttons! In designing the EDP
we considered very fast real-time response to be absolutely critical to
looping. So this was always a high priority in the design.

The JamMan is known to be rather slow in midi response though. As I recall
of that past discussion, that was the device people were talking about in
regards to the MFC-10, not the EDP. People determined it was actually the
JamMan that was slow, when they initially thought their midi controller was
slow. Andy seemed to think both were slow, as he wrote here:

that would have been in regards to the JamMan.
