In the source distribution (and on the website) is a file called 'OSC.' 
This describes all the things that can be controlled on sooperlooper. 
With 'slgui' you can set up MIDI bindings to any of those parameters... 
but you can also set up MIDI bindings via OSC commands.

In general, if it is in slgui -- it can be controlled by MIDI.  slgui only 
interfaces with sooperlooper via OSC.

I don't think sooperlooper handles midi loops like freewheeling.  AFAIK, 
sooperlooper only handles audio music.
