    Thanks for the info.  I'm only recently learning about MIDI.  Just to
clarify.  If I wanted to engage reverse I'd set my drum machine pad to 
send midi
note #69, right?


PS:  Thanks so much for maintaining Loopers Delight.  I'm a recent EDP 
owner, and
I use it at every gig.  It's enabled me to really express the music that I 
in my head.  Which, by the way, is acoustic singer/songwriter pop with 
of electronica thrown in.  Anyway, I appreciate having a community to 
share ideas
