Wait a second while I google for sooperlooper ...

Mmmm ... It looks to me like you haven't got a massive amount of
parameters (like ie the DX7?) 

I never had a problem with parameter changes coming in at the midi port.
Problem is that I have no sysex ID [1]

(And yes, I did notice that there is an implementation of DX7 for dssi.
It relies on sysex for individual parameters.)

32 something programmable knobs (with multiple destinations) on a
usb/midi surface is probably more than you'll ever have time to
understand (nor me), but when it comes to setting up the whole sheebang,
we'll both want to have access to *all* parameters. This is where the
native UI has its place. You'll do the setup off-line, therefore races
are a minor concern. 

*1) Yamaha is a registered midi vendor, and have their own sysex
preample. We have not!
