I don't know a lot about it, but it sounds like Duncan has the right idea. Hopefully your DX has MIDI OUT (mine do, but one is a late model and the other has the Stretch module). Try this: connect the SYNC OUT of the Echotron to the EXT CLOCK IN of the DX, and then press EDIT on the DX to enter parameter mode. Use < or > to get to parameter field 01. Then press STEP until the display ready 0124 (for parameter 01 [Timing], 24 ppqn). There has to be something plugged into the CLOCK IN jack for 24, 48, or 96 to come up as a timing parameter option. I also notice that the DX can put out 24, 48, or 96 ppqn from the EXT CLOCK OUT jack (parameter 03).
