You could buy more EDPs and sync them via the Brother sync, but that could get expensive at $700+ a pop. Why don't you run your EDP in the aux loop of your mixer? In other words, run from one of the aux. outs of your board to the input of the EDP, then run the output of your EDP into one of your mixer channels (so you can control the volume easier). Then for each instrument you have running into your board, if you want to loop them, turn up that aux. level on that instrument's channel. I do this all of the time when I have guest musicians play with me and I want to loop them.
Or you could just buy switch box of some sort that can converge multiple instruments into one output, which you would run to your EDP as normal.

Subject: Question for Echoplex experts.
I just purchased an Echoplex. I upgraded, or at least added from an RC
20. What Im interested in figuring out is this. I would like to
incorporate different instruments into my performances. Bass, possibly
some percussion of some kind. However, with one Echoplex I am limited
to just one channel of the mixing board. Is adding a second echoplex
the answer? It seems the manual is telling me they can be synced up via
Midi. So conceivably one loop on one machine will tell the other how
long a cycle and other parameters as well. In other words, can I play a
loop on one machine, then switch to bass and add to the loop on the
other machine and they sync up? Will multiply also work? My mind is
spinning with possibilities here. Any info would help.
Thanks and Merry Christmas.
