I've been syncing my EDPs to a JamMan. It's not perfect but does work.
I haven't found a way to keep the 2 EDPs brothersynced and still have them
respond to MIDI input.
Basically I see the 'little hicks' problem as insoluable, because
MIDI timing just isn't accurate enough for audio loops.
The EDP is very impressive in how it minimises this by 
crossfading, something that wasn't even attempted on the JamMan.
As long as Quantise is on the EDPs stay synced with the JamMan
through all sorts of Inserts, Reverses and Multiplies.

The current software already allows this (undocumented).
Recording on a blank Loop syncs, but
re-recording on a curent loop doesn't.
(a really nice feature)
