RE: Troubleshooting my EDPs and FCB....Again (factory reset guidance)

Just a troubleshooting suggestion - to take the FCB out of the
equation. If you have a MIDI keyboard, try sending appropriate
notes from it and see if both machines will respond properly.
(Try it first without the MIDI splitter - just the keyboard
into the "in" of the master and the "out" of the master into
the "in" of the slave [and with the brothersync].)
