**Title:** *Synchronous correlation matrices and Connes' Embedding Problem.*

**Abstract:** We show that Connes' Embedding Problem is equivalent to the question regarding synchornous quantum correlations, of whether the closure of $C_q^s(n,k)$ equals $C_{qc}^s(n,k)$ for all $n$ and $k$. The proof goes, in one direction, using Kirchberg's unitary moment approximation condition and in the other by use of matricial microstates to construct finite dimensional representatios.
