Note-on is the easiest (and the only way with FCB1010),
 if the controller can  send programable commands
on the release of the switch then CC are a bit more flexible.

hmmm, having a Quantised overdub would in itself 
be a new thing.............useful ??

would it be nicer to be able to just reverse a section of a loop?
again this could be variously quantised

of course with a fully featured footcontroller things would be easier .

Most obvious technique is to change the MIDI channel on one EDP.

Claude Voit's poly multiply for standard stereo EDP configuration.
1) hit Mult on slave
2) after no. of cycles you want for slave is reached, hit Mult on master
3) after no. of cycles you want for master is reached, hit Mult on master 
4) hit Undo on slave 

Matthias Grob was worried that programming seperate controls
for 2EDPs would be bad for stereo sync. I guess because
any time lag between  MIDI commands could be variable. 

Right now I have  EDP2 plugged into MIDI THRU on EDP1, 
and it seems to be syncing OK. 
.......but I need to play more to make sure
This makes EDP1 panel controls
only work for EDP1, so I have foot control for both EDPs (stereo)
and panel control for individual changes.
( and much easier to change channels on EDP1,  it's now
no longer messing with EDP2)
