Subject: [AH] sync arpeggiators? midi routing?

hi gang, i have hit a brick wall with my analogs and could really use some
help with this.....

in addition to a sampler and sometimes a digital synth (yamaha EX5 these
days) my live setup with my band is based around a Prophet 600, Jupiter 6,
and in the future possibly a JP8. i am also building a MOTM modular that i
may bring with me on gigs sometimes. i am currently using the on-board
rotary arpeggiator controls of these analog synths to time my arpeggios in
time with the beat of the songs we do. my question is, how do i get to the
next level of ∗tapping∗ the tempo i want and having the arpeggiators sync to

ALSO, this may be related, i would like to be able to control any one of my
synths from another but have not found a practical, easy-to-use midi routing
box that will allow me to do this. i am currently trying to make a Digital
Music Technologies MX28 work and while it has the physical/switch interface
(rather than programmable/digital) that i am looking for, its merging/etc
aspects are cryptic to me.

is there something (Encore Expressionist?? Philip Rees??) that would allow
me accomplish both of my tasks (syncing and midi routing)?

much appreciate your responses,
mark scetta
