um the answer is "maybe?"
check this: http://loopersdelight.com/LDarchive/200310/msg00533.html
then i would look experiment with the MIDI notes which control the
Line6 Echo Pro. unfortunately you'll have to buy or borrow one first.
the short answer for the question "can i sync an Echo Pro to my drum
machine" is "you don't want to". the longer answer is "well, probably
... but not easily. it's a pain in the ass and you'd be better off with
an EDP, JamMan, or Repeater."
i suppose you could use an Alesis MMT-8 for this. read the manual at
http://www.mmt8.com/ if you're that hard up for cash.
i have to say that the EDP offers some nice features for working with
drum machines, like recording a loop and then having the drum machine
sync up to the EDP.
