Viewing topic "MIDI clock sync from external hardware device (in song or pattern mode)?"

Hi there,

I enjoy my Motif XS as centre piece of my humble home studio, controlling a couple of external soundmodules, creating tracks in pattern or song mode. Now an Akai MPC joined the party, but this MPC has some trouble using the MIDI clock of the XS.
So I am wondering if I can turn things around: send the midi clock out from the MPC to the XS, so the XS plays the tempo/bpm of the MPC (when the XS in in pattern/ song mode). In this configuarion I still want to be able to play an external sound module from the XS (i.e. using a sound with arpeggiator, so this arp should also use the midi clock tempo of the MPC).
Is this configuration possible and how do I have to change settings in the XS for this setup?
Thanks very much for tips/ suggestions! Kind regards.
