MR-8HD Owner’s Manual (MIDI synchronization)
The following describes how to synchronize a sequencer to the MR-8HD using MIDI clock. Use
this method if the sequencer does not support MTC (MIDI Time code)
<Notes>
To synchronize a sequencer to the MR-8HD
using MIDI clock, you have to make the
signature/tempo map in the MR-8HD. The MIDI
clock is output based on the signature/tempo
map in the MR-8HD.
When you record MIDI sounds, synchronize the
sequencer to the MIDI clock fed from the
MR-8HD.
Generally, a sequencer supporting MIDI song
position pointer as well as MIDI clock can
synchronize to the MR-8HD when you start
playback of the MR-8HD from the middle of a
song. It locates the current song position and
chases the MR-8HD. However, note that some
sequencer may not synchronize to the MR-8HD.
6) Rotate the [MENU/ENTER] knob to select the
desired frame rate, and press the [MENU/ENTER]
knob.
The selected frame rate is now effective, while
"MTC FrameRate" is highlighted on the screen.
7. Press the [STOP] key to exit the menu mode.
5) Rotate the [MENU/ENTER] knob to select
"MTC FrameRate", and press the [MENU/ENTER]
knob.
The current option (the default is "25") flashes.
You can now select the desired frame rate (the
options are "24", "25", "30nd" and "30df").
1) Set the "Midi Sync Out" item in the "System"
menu of the menu mode to "Clk".
See "MIDI sync/MTC frame rate settings"
described above about how to set.
2) Create the signature/tempo map by setting
"Signature Map" and "Tempo Map" items in the
"Song" menu of the menu mode appropriately.
See "Using the rhythm guide function" on page
76 for details about how to set these items.
3) Enable the external MIDI sequencer to
synchronize to MIDI clock.
See the operation manual of the sequencer for
details.
4) Press the [PLAY] key of the MR-8HD to start
playback.
The sequencer also starts playback in sync with
the MR-8HD.
The current option (the default is "Off")
flashes. You can now select the desired option
(the available options are Off, CLK and MTC).
Off
CLK
MTC
No signal is output from the [MIDI OUT]
connector. This is the default.
MIDI clock with Song Position Pointer is
output from the [MIDI OUT] connector.
MIDI time code is output from the [MIDI
OUT] connector.
4) Rotate the [MENU/ENTER] knob to select "MTC",
and press the [MENU/ENTER] knob.
"Midi Sync Out" is now set to "MTC", while
"Midi Sync Out" is highlighted on the screen.
Connection
As with the connection for MTC synchroniza-
tion, connect the [MIDI OUT] connector of the
MR-8HD to the [MIDI IN] connector of an ex-
ternal MIDI sequencer using a MIDI cable.
