Synchronizing the TR-707 or the TR-727
As a Master (default), the unit sends DIN, Tape and MIDI sync data, both in Track mode and in Pattern mode.
In a combined MIDI and DIN setup, the easiest way to work is to use the unit as a Master and let everything else Slave to the TR.
You can also Slave the unit, but only in Track Play mode. The sync-out possibilities will be maximized only in Tape sync mode.
- press [SHIFT] + [SYNC MODE] to select the Slave mode.
|from DIN||"S-d"||TR-707 Slaved||---|
|from MIDI||"S-n"||TR-707 Slaved||---|
|from Tape||"S-t"||TR-707 Slaved||sends to DIN and MIDI|
|---||---||TR-707 as Master||sends to DIN, MIDI and Tape|
To synchronise other MIDI (like a PC sequencer) or DIN units, set up the 707 as a Master. I had to make a Windows 98 installation to get the PC to slave to the TR-727 right. Windows XP did speed up the sync time to x2, so that was unusable.
