RE: Repeater & EDP: Ideas for synergy

Right, Repeater changes tempo without changing pitch when it recieves a
tempo change.

I realize the biggest drag about using either EDP or Repeater as clock
master to the other is that midi commands from my foot controller will only
be seen by the master unit. The second unit, having its midi in coming from
the other looper's midi out, prevents it from seeing midi coming in from 
other source, thus no remote control of the 2nd looper. The *only*
communication between the two units is midi clock when set up in this way,
which is a deal breaker as far as I can see.

Seems like a much more powerful setup is having both synced to a common
source: a drum machine or sequencer.
