Re: Echoloop VST MIDI controller

Phil, try not taking the round-trip to first assign the Echoloop
plugin's parmeters to Live's system and then assigning Live's system
to your external physical control gear. Instead you could set up a
direct MIDI path into the Echoloop and feed it directly from your
external MIDI control gear. That's what the Echoloop is designed for.

Greetings from Sweden
