Re: repeater/mofx synch

Gee, almost a year old, but I was trying to dig through the various 
clock threads.

Does the information below mean that if one stuck a filter in front of the
Mo-FX's MIDI input to strip out MIDI Start clock messages but keep the 
clock messages that you could work around the Repeater clock problems by
syncing once and then letting the Mo-FX stay tempo locked?
