Doing a global reset on both is quickest. Instant if you use midi.

that's right.

I wasn't able to reproduce that. both of them always reset the sync 
whenever I did a reset or a global reset on both. You'll need to give more 
information about what you are doing, like parameter settings, exact 
sequence of events etc.

In any case, if a unit is receiving sync while in reset you should see a 
time displayed in the LoopTime window, the tempo LEDs should be flashing, 
and the sync indicator LED will blink each time a brother pulse comes. If 
you are not getting all that then it has nothing to do with sync. Another 
important thing you will see is the Overdub LED comes on Orange. When a 
unit is reset and sync is present, this indicates the Overdub button has a 
special function of "ignore sync". If you press the Overdub button, the 
echoplex will ignore the incoming sync and you can freely record any 
length. Maybe this will be helpful if you find yourself in situations 
there is a mysterious sync coming and you need to start a new loop without
