To clarify, I'm going to be syncing EDP to the PX7. A nice feature of the
PX7 that I've not figured out in typical drum machines I've used is that
the tempo is stored with the sequence, so you call up the drum sequence to
use and it's got the tempo I stored with it. For my purposes that's
though I'm sure it could be set up to work the other way too.

good think the box I bought is still at Loop III in that respect.
Hopefully LoopIII will deliver all the things I need without needing

I want to be able to do both. I want to be able to stop everything from the
controller, and I want to be able to mute the EDP and still have the PX7
