Interesting. I duplicated the experiment that Kim suggested, where I
recorded a drum pattern that was coming out of the same drum machine that
was providing the Electrix synch. I had good results. Tried it several
times with different beta versions of the software, and they all seemed
good. The only one I have not tried was the official release of version
I'll give it a whirl tonight and see how it behaves.
