I think "following tempo" is a better term since "sync" may also
include transport functions and that is not part of the beat sync.

When used the beat pulse to make the EDP follow a multitrack recorder
I first recorded the pulse out of the EDP onto one channel of the
recorder. At the next stage I set the EDP to follow this recorded beat
pulse and it worked flawlessly! Therefore I suggest that you listen to
the EDP's beat pulse output and then use whatever sound and time
division on the 808 that sounds mostly like that.
