how do they work being synced with mobius?
I work with the mpc1000 in both modes, using it as
master and slaving it ot the EDPs

yes i hear you this is the big sacrifice,ive been
using the EDP for so long that nay other looper bores
as far as fx I would be using something like the T.C.
electronics G-natural flor unit to use for my acoustic
before the RC-50,and for my voice efx ill use
something like the vocal live 4,for after fx ive been
using the Mofx but i guess i could live without it
