MC-303: Syncing to External MIDI Devices (Sync Mode)

Tags: mc-303
Sync Mode settings determine how the internal sequencer will function and how
MIDI clock messages will be transmitted and received.

INT: The Internal sequencer will operate using its own internal tempo clock and
transmit MIDI clock messages.

SLAVE: The Internal sequencer will synchronize to MIDI clock.

REMOTE: The Internal sequencer will operate using its own internal tempo clock
and transmit MIDI clock messages. However, START/STOP messages from an external
MIDI device will START/STOP the Internal sequencer.

Use the following procedure to choose the MIDI sync mode for the MC-303:

1) Hold SHIFT and press SYSTEM[keyboard pad 16] to access the System Setting
display.
2) Use the SELECT < > cursor buttons to select SY1.
