MR-8HD Owner’s Manual (MIDI synchronization)
The following describes how to synchronize a sequencer to the MR-8HD which supports MTC
(MIDI Time code).
Connect the [MIDI OUT] connector of the MR-8HD to the [MIDI IN] connector of an external MIDI
sequencer using a MIDI cable. (Note that no MIDI cable is supplied with the MR-8HD. Use a
commercially available MIDI cable.)
1) Set the "Midi Sync Out" item in the "System"
menu of the menu mode to "MTC" and the "MTC
Frame Rate" to an appropriate frame rate.
See "MIDI sync/MTC frame rate settings"
described below for details.
2) Enable the external MIDI sequencer to
synchronize to MTC.
See the operation manual of the sequencer for
details.
3) Press the [PLAY] key of the MR-8HD to start
playback.
The sequencer automatically starts playback
while synchronizing to the MR-8HD.
While the MR-8HD is stopped, you can set the
reference of MIDI synchronization to "MTC"
and the MTC frame rate appropriately to
match the sequencer.
2) Rotate the [MENU/ENTER] knob to select
"System", and press the [MENU/ENTER] knob.
The display now shows the first page of the
system menu screen, where "<< BACK" is
highlighted initially.
<MTC start time>
The MTC from the MR-8HD has one hour offset
to the ABS time (the offset value is fixed). There-
fore, when you start the MR-8HD from the be-
ginning of a song (ABS ZERO), the MTC starts
from "01h00m00s00f".
1) While the recorder is stopped, press the
[MENU/ENTER] knob to enter the menu mode.
The display now shows the first page of the
menu selection screen, where "<< Back" is
highlighted initially (selecting "<< Back"
returns to the previous screen).
