yes,to start with i could not beleive that i could not simply change 
program changes from my FBC1010 midi out to the Ultralite midi in and out 
to my Adrenalinn,it was really flaky sometimes it would and i would have 
to stomp several times on the button and other times it just wouldnt.No 
probelms however throguh my presonus or my EDP dont ask me why!

yes i worked with its software as well but when im looping and have my 
hands already busy i rather physically grab a knob quickly rather than 
searching for the mouse and clicking screens i guess ill never warm up to 
that playing live 
or perhaps im too ol school;-)

Yes i agree, im quite happy using mobius as my looper,at the moment i feel 
just fine using the software strictly for looping and doing all the 
xternal effect stuff with hardware,i dont think i m ready to go all SW 
yet, the thoguth of it make me too nervous but the combination of both 
suits me well!
