Re: RC-50 tempo sync issues via MIDI clock

I thought i heard someone say a while back that the RC50 has to be the
master, not the slave, then it will work...Try that and let me know if it
works because if the until will not synch up via MIDI i have to get rid of
mine because this is exactly why i bought it and what i was going to use it
for....to MIDI synch up to Ableton's Live...
