I really don't know if a lot of parameters can be changed over midi.  
I think changing program is very convenient with the EDP. Just one  
pedal kick will change as many parameters as you want. I play my EDP  
with ten different programs: five programs when I play in 4/4, three  
in 5/4 and two for 6/8. The 8th/cycle is the parameter I keep  
different from program to program. It serves two purposes: kicking  
slaved looping devices into a different tempo relation to the EDP and  
changing the duration for audio slices I add to loops). There are a  
few of the programs with no quantization, but otherwise they are  
quite similar.
