Yes, I mean including the DirectMIDI-Commands, actually. And also the long
presses, which often perform a different function.

Same here! I had to take a few lessons from Andy, though, to grasp what to
do with those cycles and loops...

(blush) Thanks, Per!
I actually imagine something like that, or even an application that you can
use to find out "where you can go from here". This application would
actually be hooked up via midi to the EDP, constantly monitor it, and would
always tell you the state of your device, and how you can go where during
your playing, sort of an "interactive cookbook". This could be extended to
other devices too ...
