Heh, I plead guilty!I use the HR-16 as the* brain*in my setup.I have an 8x8 Ensonic midi mixer and I run all the midi ins and outs of my Jamman,old Yamaha seqencer, keyboard,etc. and a Roland TR-626 drum machine that I use for its ability to put out a +5 v. pulse when you program a click.This I use to control my Digitech 7.6 +which can be run on control voltage.I can get 2 or more bars going depending on tempo. The Jamguy is totally different.Your right about the ability to master or slave,however it always seems stiff to me and I get glitches frequently when used like this.Either way. If the tap tempo echo section had a hold I would use that.It's not midi though! When the Jammer is in midi sync you have no control via tapping. I am very interested in anybody else's take on this.
