RE: Hi everybody.
Thanks for the response Ted,
I know what you mean but I'm really hoping to at least be able to get
the clocks to sync because my output goes into both a guitar amp and
small pa so I need the separation offered by two channels. My main
concern is somehow being able to separate out the guitar signal from the
rest of my stuff. I run bass into the board, mic hand drums and also use
vinyl and a scratch mixer to drop beats into the mix. Vocal harmony
would also not sound quite right going through my twin. I suppose I
could just mic the guitar amp but it never ends up sounding quite right
to me when I do it this way.
I'm just not a big fan of the modelling stuff so guitar into the board
I had a 2880 fo a while and it worked great because it handled stereo,
but the "multiply" feature is what eventually made me go to the
I'm debating whether to just sell the echoplex setup and get a boomerang
Has anyone played with one? It seems to do everything I need but the
echoplex learning curve was just so long I'm reluctant to give it up.

Hi there and welcome aboard!
I don't know a thing about synching a "mixed pair" of an older EDP and
a newer one.
I have had the same matched pair since 1996 and for many years ran
them as a perfectly matched and synched pair.
But just to let you know that if there is any chance your pair won't
"play nice" together in stereo, there are plenty of reasons and ways
to still use them as distinct un-synched mono units - which is what I
have been doing with mine for 3-4 years now.
I "stereo-ize" the mono output of each with other FX units (in my case
an Alesis Akira for each) and am able to keep 2 distinct looping
patterns going with 2 distinct types of looping.
If I want to keep ambient-ish non rhythmic material going on one while
I slice dice and chop glitchy rhythms up on the other with sus-replace-
insert techniques I can have both worlds going at the same time.
So . . . if it turns out your EDPs are mismatched, don't despair . . .
lots of fun can still be had.
I am by no means any sort of loping guru in this group.
But I have been here a long while - almost as long as the group has
Hope someone can point you in the right direction.
