My advice is to sync manually by either tempo tapping a pedal or  
using a pedal button that restarts all loops instantly. I give this  
advice because a "restart/trigger all loops" kick button works better  
for me compared to other methods I have used with Electrixpro  
Repeater, Gibson Echoplex, Ableton Live and Mobius.

I too like MainStage a lot, but I still use Logic for looping virtual  
MIDI instruments. I make this choice because I like using some  
functions I have built in the Environment, like different arpeggio  
lines and a tuned/intelligent chord creator (the Chord Memorizer  
object, for those who know Logic). However, If I should have been  
playing guitar only, I would go with MainStage right away.
