    Up to this point, synchronization with external MIDI equipment has been explained with the D-160 as the master and MIDI equipment as the slave but depending on the slave mode setting, the MIDI equipment can be set as the master and D-160 as the slave.
  • Page 128 Because the D-160 cannot immediately chase lock after input of MTC, in order to sync the D-160 from head of the tune, set the preroll using the sequence software, and playback from before the actual head of the tune to allow the D-160 to enter into sync by the time it arrives at the head of the tune.

Therefore, when you set up a digital input track, the D-160 will not sync with the MTC even if “Vari” has been selected for the Slave mode setting. Once the D-160 locks to the master device, it will sync to the external digital input signal (in the same manner as when SP DIF or adat signals are used).
