RE: zen and the fluent music

Whatever you're playing, be there...unless of course it's something
like a very un-zen cover of "Volare" or "Freebird." Then you must stop.
Here's a really cool book: Hazrat Inayat Khan: The Mysticism of Sound and Music.
Sorry Kris - yahoo returned it to your box instead of loopers where I was
trying to send it...

thats how I feel, and makes it dificult to use anything but an EDP
because all other units and even the soft copies partly introduce
... which I can understand, its terrible to program without

yes, it cuts flow for my taste...

right... we were not talking about complicated things, just a pedal
to flow with FB... you will love it!
