Re: Looper as MIDIclock master

I have been trying to record in real time on 3 different drum machines,
with the drum machine either synched to a Jam Man, or to my digital 8-track
recorder that has midi sync (Fostex dmt-8).  I have used an Alesis HR-16,
Boss Dr-660 and Boss Dr. 770.  I have had very little luck, as well.
Recording the drum tracks 'off line' is pretty crappy and not really my
style, either...but i haven't found any way around it.

if anybody knows of a machine that could 'record' in real time and in tempo
synch with a looper or my recorder, i would definitely put it on my
christmas list...

has anybody worked with the akai mpc units like this, or the asr-x (i think
that's what it's called).
