Re: question using 2 EDPs unsynced

Thanx Andy,yes i remeber trying this before i had a
brother sync stereo cable and having them drift when
overdub was on,really a pitty do we stand a chance of
another EDP software upgrade?
anyway,have u used them as 2 separate units with one
controller(FCB1010)? any drawbacks?
i lost the mail you or Kim once sent about how to do
this setup,would you mind sending it again? i am
really tempted to try it!
