MIDI - Midi Time Code (MTC)
MIDI TIME CODE input is useful to synchronize a cycle with an incoming MIDI TIME CODE signal. In this case the software is said to be "Slave" and the external system "Master". The signal can be generated by a CD/DVD player, an SMPTE generator, a 3rd party software (sound, video, laser...).
For such use, make sure :
- your computer is equipped with a MIDI card (usually included in sound card) or a USB-MIDI interface
- to activate "MIDI IN" function in the "Audio/Midi" section of the "Starting parameters" (from the "Controller" menu)
- to activate "TIME CODE IN" in "Synchro" section of "Page - Settings" window
Once all the settings are over, it will be possible to synchronize with MIDI TIME CODE input all the cycles in the corresponding page (one at a time). A small button "MTC IN" appears in the Cycle windows to disable/enable the function as shown in the picture below.
Incoming MIDI TIME CODE can also be activated while creating a cycle. Timing will then be automatically computed on MIDI TIME CODE.
