We study multitoken interaction machines in the context of a very expressive logical system with exponentials, fixpoints and synchronization. The advantage of such machines is to provide models in the style of the Geometry of Interaction, i.e., an interactive semantics which is close to low-level implementation. On the one hand, we prove that despite the inherent complexity of the framework, interaction is guaranteed to be deadlock free. On the other hand, the resulting logical system is
