I'm a fairly new EDP user. (was using a DL-4)  I'm a singer songwriter 
doing 4
minute pop songs in a coffee shop type setting.  There is a slight learning
curve.  As far as using it live it's not much harder than using a DL-4 in 
opinion.  Just spend a lot of time learning how to use it.(I'm still in 
process myself, and I am also blown away by what can be done)  I also found
Andre's site to be completely inspiring and educational for what the EDP 
can do

My two cents,
