Re: RC20 - EDP sync

hi there one and all.

Im just thinking out loud here and im not saying that this is the solution for this paticular problem, however i have thought of a technique that might be fun.

I came up with this as a way of letting me loop with a beginning loop-ist mate with an RC-20.

basically I used a splitter cable on the output of the RC-20 and connected one to his amp and one to the BeatSync jack of the EDP,

On my EDP I would setup to recieve sync to the beat, I would then begin by letting him make a loop to a time of his choosing, then he would turn his output signal down and put that awful metronome up (by the way this is a fun jam thing not a crowdpleasing theatre filler)  and let the beat detect get it and use it to define my loop time.

We are now (as the theory goes) locke togeather using a common time base. al kinds of building up up up fun can be had.

I know its not exacty rocketscience or the next leap forward in tech but it is a goodway to jam and guide someone through a few tricks
