Rale asked: " Rick, in my previous posting I forgot to ask if you could please clarify for me whether 'MIDI Solutions Active MIDI Thru Box' would work if I wanted to use Alesis SR-16 as my master MIDI clock for Boss RC-50 looper, wh! ile having at the same time Alesis SR-16 connected to another sound module or a PC based sampler, functioning as a trigger/sequencer. I know that this probably falls into the domain of MIDI basics, but I was not sure if you thought of the MIDI thru box in the context of a setup where a different MIDI device would be sending master MIDI clock information. " I don't know the answer to this question, I'm sorry. I suspect not, however, but you'll need to get advise from someone with more working knowledge of midi than me. When I want both my FCB 1010 pedals and my wind synthesizer to drive my Repeater with a MIDI merge box, it would not work but that may be down to the Repeater's midi ineptitude. After reveiwing all the solutions, I'd say your best bet is the Electribe (if you like the sounds) or the EMU command station paradigm.
