* If correct sync cannot be obtained, re-check the connections/cables and setting of both equipment.
In the D-108, the "ABS 0" position is set at "002BAR/1BEAT /00CLK."
This setting is made in consideration of the time required (it will not sync immediately) for the MIDI sequencer, etc. to enter into sync.
As a result, if the D-108 is played back from ABS 0 (LOCATE ABS 0), sync will be completed by the time it reaches the first bar, and
will thus synchronize from head of the tune.
Execution of recording
Various ways of recording can be conducted while synchronizing the D-108 and the MIDI sequencer with the MIDI
MTC sync/MIDI machine control system
The following will explain synchronization by the MTC (MIDI time code) output and the computer controlling system
using MMC (MIDI machine control). In this system, the D-108 will be the master and the computer (with sequence
software) will be the slave. The D-108 will attach any desired offset (time difference) against ABS time (absolute time)
and output it as MTC in any desired frame rate.
It can also carry out the proper operation upon receiving an MMC and Fostex System Exclusive Message from outside.
In this case, because the D-108 can setup a DEVICE ID number by the SETUP mode "MIDI Device ID Setting" menu, a
multiple number of D-108's can be separately controlled by changing the DEVICE ID numbers in the transmitted
message from the computer. In regards to the corresponding content for MMC, refer to the "MMC list" on page "126"
and on the Fostex System Exclusive Message, the "Fostex Exclusive List" on page "127."
* Set D-108 in the initial state.
* Confirm the program and sampling frequency.
