You should really try doing it the other way around: Playing the EDP  
and sync RMX to the EDP MIDI Clock. I guess you would not want to go  
back if you tried it ;-)  Also, by using MIDI sequences you limit the  
RMX quite a lot. Try to run it in MIDI Mode "Groove" (instead of  
"Slice") and map some MIDI faders, pedals or whatever to critical RMX  
function. That way you can "play" it in realtime as you loop with the

Of course! You are running the EDP as he sync slave and it can not  
change an already recorded loop. What I do in such a situation is to  
record a new loop with the action Record-->Record (sometimes  
Multiply-->Record). This will tell the EDP the new tempo and it will  
then stay in sync.
