the 8th parameter is the key to sync out:the value equals the nb of 8th
notes that the initial cycle will spit out: want to play a short cycle 1
quarter note long 
1- set 8th :2 
2- play something
3-record during 1 quarter note
4-plex loops 1 quarter and sequencer started
5-Multiply, insert , whatever

a very long cycle set 8th:16 then record during a 2 measures cycle

in the next upgrade you'll be able to manipulate tempo and remote
control a sequencer completly in incredible ways

the most important thing is to filter out to death any
message,channel,realtime,sys etc out that is not relevant to each
separate receiver 
almost each of my midi receiving devices are on theyr midi chanel and
physical separate line
for that I still use the excellent opcode 8portse 8 in/out
