Setting the MIDI Sequencer
The MIDI sequencer must be set to receive and synchronize to MIDI Timecode at 30 frames/sec-
ond. Refer to your MIDI sequencer's user manual for more information.
MTC Cabling Note
The Setting Up a Synchronized MIDI System illustration on page 50 shows the MIDI cable from
MD4 connecting to a dedicated MTC input on the MIDI sequencer. That's because MTC is best
kept separate from normal MIDI data. If your MIDI sequencer does not have a dedicated MTC
input, however, you may be able to merge the MTC signal with other MIDI data and connect
that to the MIDI sequencer's normal MIDI input. If your MIDI data is very busy (i.e., contains
a lot of real-time Control Changes), however, you may experience synchronization delay prob-
lems. For reliable operation, keep normal MIDI data and MTC separate.
