Re: EDP Capabilities (was Newbie question)

"Simple" and "on the fly multitracking in a live context" aren't the 
most comfortable of bedfellows.

I've got two EDPs that I use for this sort of thing, and you've got to 
come to grips with the EDP footcontroller, an A/B box to switch between 
the two EDPs, a line mixer to handle all the audio and mentally keeping 
track of what's in what loop on what box while playing your instrument 
and remembering your audience.
Some people find this easier than others, but I'd recommend some time 
in the woodshed with this setup before you play out if you want to 
avoid unexpected empty loops, unsynchronized overdubs (learning how to 
completely reset all loops on all EDPs is a must), forgetting where 
your start point is on a particular loop/cycle.
I don't want to scare you off, but it is a new skill which can really 
pay off, but it takes a bit of work.
