So far I only have one EDP, but since no one else is posting I'll put  
something in. Have you disabled midi clock sync when you are using  
brother sync? Do that by setting both EDPs to "Timing/Sync = Out". I  
think it would be a good idea to use a midi split box instead of  
daisy chaining the EDPs.

Are you running them in parallel to catch stereo loops (i.e.  
recording the same thing into them both, taking audio outputs as Left/ 
Right)? That's interesting because the small drifting of sync may  
create dynamic phasing errors that make the stereo width breathe. Or  
are you running them to play two loops against each other? I think I  
would do like to that more if I had two EDPs. Setting them to two  
different midi channels and have a couple of FCB banks for each one  
as well as some FCB banks for trimming the two loops simultaneously.  
A third way is to run them in tandem, having the option of recording  
the first EDPs output into second EDP, but right now I can't imagine  
any good things coming from that.

Will you post your findings?
