JS-5: Synchronization

Tags: midi,slave,clock,js-5
The JS-5 can be synchronized to a device that transmits MIDI clock. Use the following procedure to set the JS-5 to external sync:

1. With a MIDI cable, connect the MIDI OUT of the external MIDI device to the MIDI IN of the JS-5.

2. Press UTILITY.

3. Press the CURSOR RIGHT button to select the "MIDI SYNC MODE."

4. Turn the VALUE dial to select "MIDI."
Note: The selected song in the JS-5 will play only when receiving a "MIDI Clock" message. The external MIDI device determines the tempo and the JS-5 will follow in "sync" when you start or stop the external unit.

5. Press EXIT to return to Play Mode.
