Steve and Michael - Overall playing-wise, my time is actually pretty good. But when I try to loop on my echoplex against drum loops running off a laptop - the drift between the echoplex loops and the laptop loops get's pretty noticable by about 1 minute or so. I've really focused on trying to get it precise - but I never seem to get it to hold up over the long haul of an entire 5-8 minute piece. Any tricks you use - or is this something I'm just gonna have to pound away at until I get it? Wait - I think I just answered my own question.
