I dont have a Repeater to test this, and I wonder. Some say its syncs 
dead on, Mark said the drums was perfect but the EDP was off... I 
dont know, and I wonder... probably depends strongly on the OS 
I just know that a slaved drum follows the EDP pretty exactly.
All three units have some artefacts when they are slaved (I wrote a 
longer mail about the limitations of MIDI to drive audio correctly). 
As I heard the JamMan clicks are stronger than the EDP clicks and 
Repeater probably does not produce clicks but other artefacts that 
come from time stretching, which hardly can be "dead on"...
