Op1f + po33

I recently grabbed a P033 to use with my OP1F. I like to record by using mainly a collage of smaller samples, which isn’t great for the OP but works perfectly in the PO (being careful of polyphony problems). My idea was to sync the OP>PO, and to mainly build the sequence in the PO. Two main problems with this I’ve encountered so far 1. When in sync mode Sy4 the PO doesn’t record, and 2. When in PO sync mode the sync pulses are being recorded into the PO. So every time I want to record from the OP>PO I need to change both of those settings in both devices, pretty cumbersome workflow. I can’t think of any solution to this but still wanted to ask if anyone has any ideas. Thanks!
