Hi Mike,

so as you're using the term "Brother Sync" does that mean
that you can just start playing and any Rang that's connected will take on 
the role of Master?

        Please see my previous reply on this subject. This depends on how 
2 Rang(TM) IIIs are connected.

It's always a bit strange when other manufacturers start using terms that 
were coined to designate EDP
specific functions, the implication is that the function has been 
duplicated while the reality is often just
that the words have been just picked up somewhere along the way (well 
after all, they aren't copyright)

Being unfamiliar with the technical details of the Echoplex Digital Pro, I have to say I have no idea how our bro-sync stacks up against theirs. We didn't attempt to emulate what the EDP does.

The term "brother sync" is pretty specific (or was) and does (did?) mean that 
the master>>slave relationship
can be freely assigned without re-cabling.
Also there's a danger that users will expect that EDP and Boomerang can be 
connected together!

        Please don't expect this. The III and EDP have only read about 
each other and aren't on speaking terms as yet.

Although, it *would* be fantastic if there was a common protocol for this.

Either way it's great to see the most powerful looper currently available 
gaining another valuable feature.

        Hey, thanks. I like the sound of "the most powerful looper currently 
available" .

Hi folks,
    We have a new version of software that allows multiple Rang(TM) IIIs 
to be synced WITHOUT any MIDI
clock, and are looking for folks to check it out. It's free, of course, 
and can be easily downloaded, but
makes no sense to do so unless you have more than one III. This new 
software, to be dubbed V3.1 when
released, has only one new feature, this "brother sync" concept. You'll 
need MIDI cables connecting the IIIs.
    I was testing with 3 Rang(TM) IIIs and had some impressive results: 12 
loops could be started and
stopped and played together.

    If you're interested, send me an email and I'll reply with 2 attached 
files: .mid software file
(downloaded to the III with a MIDI file player) and a .doc file describing 
the software.
