Re: Looper as MIDIclock master

Many drum machines don't alllow real-time, on-the-fly
programming in the manner you intend.

What you may need instead is a sequencer to record the
MIDI data in "free mode" like a tape record does.
Also, make sure your sync resolution and quantizing
between machines is exact and consistent. Some machines
have finer resolutions than others.

Good luck,
