I plead guilty!I use the HR-16 as the* brain*in my setup.I have an 8x8
midi mixer and I run all the midi ins and outs of my Jamman,old Yamaha
keyboard,etc. and a Roland TR-626 drum machine that I use for its ability
to put out

be run on control voltage.I can get 2 or more bars going depending on
The Jamguy is totally different.Your right about the ability to master or
it always seems stiff to me and I get glitches frequently when used like

When the Jammer is in midi sync you have no control via tapping.
I am very interested in anybody else's take on this.
