V-CLUB-SET, TD-6: Synchronization

Tags: midi,td-6,v-club-set,slave,clock,timing
The sequencer in the TD-6 can be synchronized to an external device that transmits MIDI clock - i.e. a Sequencer or Recorder. Use the following steps to set the TD-6 to external sync.

1. With a MIDI cable, connect the MIDI OUT of the external MIDI device to the MIDI IN of the TD-6.

2. Hold SHIFT and press EDIT/SETUP.

3. Press the CURSOR RIGHT arrow button (>) to select “MIDI COMMON.”

4. Press ENTER.

5. Press the CURSOR RIGHT arrow button to select “SYNC MODE.”

6. Press ENTER.

7. Press the DEC/- or INC/+ button to select "EXT."
Note: When set to "EXT," the TD-6 functions as a slave device and the song selected will play only when receiving a "MIDI Clock" message. The external MIDI device determines the tempo and the TD-6 will follow in "sync" when you start or stop the external unit.

8. Press the SONG button to return to the Song Play Mode.
