Having just replied that the issue of volatility probably isn't as crucial
as we might think, it'd still be nice to be able to save/load them loops at

I'd be interested in that price point, but would be definitely more
interested if the interface was some sort of fast removable media that
could used as storage and/or memory. Can the EDP address more memory space
than the maxxed out SIMMS currently allow? Obviously something like this
would cost more, but be well worth it.
