No need. The tempo maps are just for tempo changes after cue start. I did not realize this initially, which is why I msg'd you earlier about it. I just have to set up a Cue Start from the front panel, and if M. Clock is ON, the tempo map for it is part of the Cue Start configuration. Only problem is, I can't seem to edit an existing Cue Start once I exit it, only create new ones until I do a Clear ALL. It's a primitive device. Dunno how useful it's gonna be.

VST is just the internal sync of the DAW.

Yep, thought of this while using the PPS yesterday. I've run an Access Virus b and TB303 together with vst plugins, and they all locked. The Virus would glitch its sync once out of every 15 or so starts. I still haven't tested my ESQ-1 and MPC1000.

Here is a sample of syncing a vst plugin, with TR909 drums, to the Virus b's arpeggiator and delay:

Sounds solid, as if it was one machine - how it should be :thumbright:

I don't know if this does what you want, but it looks like it should? Certainly has a lot of sync options. On E bay for $10 right now ($40 BIN).

Might be worth checking out as an alternative.

I believe the Timepiece AV is for LTC to MTC(or the reverse) conversions. Adat sync also, but my original post was converting LTC to Midi Clocks, where tempo information must be generated from basic time code.
