Ok, i own a Yamaha s08, a Roland sh-201, and an alesis micron....
i want all of them to match bpms....
ive tried midi out of the s08 to midi in of the sh-201 then midi thru to midi in of the micron..
my ultimate goal is to play a phrase on one board...have it loop go play another pharse on another board, have that loop together with the first and finally play the third board and have that loop on top of the other 2..
do i need a sampler?
do i need a sequencer?
do i need a Motu midi time piece 2 or opcde studio4?
please help me if you can i feel like im two steps away from attaining my goal but i dont know exactly what i need to do and i dont feel like throwing money away
thanks

To get multiple devices to sync, you need at least one device that sends midi clock. It should be first in the chain, the next 2 should be set to external sync.

You would need to go out from the first device, in to the second and thru to the third.

The play on each and loop bit will depend on the capabilities of each device. Doing this in real time would be beyond most devices, as most use either sequencers you program in advance and then playback or arpeggiators that use pre-programmed methods of playing back held notes.
