    how to sync a tascam msr16 to logic

    hi

    i have searched the internet and been on many forums yet no one has given me a straight answer, so im hoping one of you lovely people may be able to help.

    how do i sync my tascam msr 16 track tape recorder to logic, with logic as the master?

    do i need an mts1000 or can i use something else like a time line microlynx, maybe 2x lyinx modules or a tascam es50?

    please can someone help

    Kindest regards Richard

    I commend you for choosing the DAW as the master...

    You need a device that speaks both MIDI and SMPTE timecode.

    I've tried this with an ES-50 and a Tascam 58 and Cubase, but because the ES-50 is SMPTE only it is a major PITA...trust me. Nothing against the ES-50...if you are sync'ing two machines its just fine and well-built.

    ATS-500 and MTS-1000 are KIND of in the same boat but they have MIDI functionaility, but not quite in the way you want to use it.

    I finally caved to the admonitions of several people to just do it right and get a TimeLine Microlynx.

    It is...awesome.

    If you can find one and you really want to do this, it is THE ticket for chase-locking your tape machine to a DAW using MTC and SMPTE TC.
