Re: Repeater & EDP: Ideas for synergy

i've been thinking about this a bit over the last few weeks as i try to 
get my
looper rig together for gigging.  obviously one could use a midi merger to 
get control
information and sync from one to the other, but wouldn't it be better if 
the devices
had an option to merge midi in with midi out? this would simplify things 
quite a bit i think...

whadyasay matthias? can this be added to the edp?
