Synchronize ARBs without external trigger? (33522A)

Hello,

we have the 33522A and want to use it to generate signals on the two channels. I mastered to upload the waveforms (ARBs) and construct the SEQs to the two channels. Both SEQs are exactly the same length (500k Samples), but most of that is a small ARB containing noise that is repeated (marked "repeat" within the SEQ). When I test the channels independently the output looks good.

But how can I have the two channels start the output at the same time? (I have no external trigger available.)

Is there maybe a way to use the "onceWaitTrig" in a SEQ to make channel 2 wait for channel 1?
I tried making both channels wait for the timed trigger but it appears to me every channel has its own timer, so the channels are not in sync.

I don't believe we have to use another waveform generator to construct a trigger...

Thanks for your help
