Hans, Duncan, thank you both. Hans, My DX is the Stretch Model, it does have MIDI OUT. I will try your suggested set up tonight! That sounds like it will work. Duncan, I will keep an eye out for the KMS-30, a friend of mine has one hooked up in his rig, never knew what it did though... I would eventurally like to upgrade my Drum Machine, probably to a Novation D-Station or the like, so that will be handy to have around. If you do want to sell yours, send me an email. Thanks again, Jim Original Messages ================= I don't know a lot about it, but it sounds like Duncan has the right idea. Hopefully your DX has MIDI OUT (mine do, but one is a late model and the other has the Stretch module). Try this: connect the SYNC OUT of the Echotron to the EXT CLOCK IN of the DX, and then press EDIT on the DX to enter parameter mode. Use < or > to get to parameter field 01. Then press STEP until the display ready 0124 (for parameter 01 [Timing], 24 ppqn). There has to be something plugged into the CLOCK IN jack for 24, 48, or 96 to come up as a timing parameter option. I also notice that the DX can put out 24, 48, or 96 ppqn from the EXT CLOCK OUT jack (parameter 03). Good Luck, -Hans I haven't had a proper look at the schematic but the blurb suggests that the 24ppqn is output-only. this needn't be a problem.... assuming you're attached to the box and don't want to substitute something that will deal with incoming midi clock, here's what I'd do: use the deltalabs as the master clock and find something that can run off 24ppqn clock and generate 96ppqn midi clock. there are a number of devices from that awkward time when midi had just appeared but there was still a lot of roland and korg kit around using the roland or korg timing system. (korg's was 48ppqn). something like one of the older-and-larger roland drum machines like a 909 maybe. quite a few modern devices will generate 24/48 but won't slave to it. or, if you can find one, a korg kms-30. this now-sought-after unit will translate between 24, 48 and midi, with any of them as master, and also has a tape-sync interface. I have successfully used it to clock an alesis hr16 from a roland mc202. mine may be for sale. let me know if you're keen to go down this route. duncan.
