Re: Sync

Hey Olivier...

[Note: this isn't really on-topic for looping, but since some of you are
concerned with syncing issues...]

If that works, then all power to you...

BUT! The 606 has a couple of trigger outs, which mirror the patterns
for the hi- and lo- toms. Surely it'd be easier to sync the 101 with one of
those triggers?

And that'd still leave you with the 606's audio out, letting you use its
sweet hi-hats for your tracks.
