--> Michael,
Just want to add some personal tips to Andy's excellent write-up. He  
does mention Replace Mode and that's really awesome! I love to run my  
EDP in Replace Mode because you can then use the feedback knob on the  
front to set how much of the old audio will be kept under the new  
SUSSubstitute slices that you cut into the loop. But you can only get  
at Replace Mode if you connect a pedal at the rear feedback pedal  
jack. Since I use an FCB1010 MIDI pedal to control the EDP I just put  
a blind plug into the feedback jack, a dummy. What happens then that  
my assigned MIDI expression pedal controls the EDP feedback while the  
machine works in Replace Mode. Awesome!

Anther good advice for doing SUSSubstituting with the EDP is to set  
up many presets of the same setting, but only with different values  
for 8th/cycle. In my EDP I even have presets with 8th/cycle settings  
useful for playing in 6/8, 5/4 etc. When you play and cut in audio  
slices into the loop you can jump between the EDP presets for the  
preset that is best suited for what you have in mind. When playing in  
4/4 I like to start out with 8th/cycl=16 and if I feel that it would  
be nice with some sliced stuttering in a triad feel rhythm I might  
kick in the preset with 8th/cycle=24.
