Re: sync problems with multiple loops (Echoplex)

Is keeping multiple loops aligned really a problem with the Echoplex? I was
assuming I had set some parameters wrong causing the offset mentioned 

I want to record and play multiple loops to which the drummer plays with a
click. If the loops are not aligned correctly the parts will be off a 16th
or even an 8th note, rendering multiple loops useless for band purposes. I
have tried MIDI-sync and Beat-sync with the same bad results.

Someone please tell me this can be done. Matthias?
