    Model 12
    Hello,

    Is it possible to sync the Model 12 and 788 via midi such that when I hit record on the Model 12, the 788 will record simultaneously and not drift?

    I’ve seen other posts about slaving the 788 and connecting two 788s so this seemed straightforward but wanted to double check before buying a 788 (currently have a model 12)

    thanks much,
    Schaeffer

    I don't use MIDI sync, so I'm not super helpful here, but I have often synced the 788 to slave my Studio One DAW (PC) via MTC, and that works absolutely no problem. I assume MIDI Sync is "easier" to sync, technically speaking, than chasing what amounts to 30 square waveforms per second (i.e., MIDI timecode), so my guess MIDI sync should be straightforward.
