The EDP will shift a loop a small amount to put it in sync,
but if it's further out it let's it run free.  This allows us
to de-sync and re-sync at will.

Before I became involved with the Loop4 software,
Claude Voit & Matthias spent a lot of time on the MIDI
sync,  maybe a couple of years !
check out Claude's music if you want to see if it works :-)

I did beta testing on a couple of EDPs, and removed the 
brothersync connection to see how they would sync just
by MIDI, ...there was a significant improvement over Loop3,
the machines were more or less phase accurate together
(though not sample accurate like with brothersync) 

....and of course, Kim did a lot of testing, and he's
pretty fussy about such things .
