Can Sonar2 act as master and send SMPTE/MTC?

Postby sergiii » Sun Dec 21, 2003 8:35 pm

I'm trying to sync some equipment to my SONAR2 project, but I haven't found any options to make SONAR send SMPTE/MTC codes. I only can configure it as a slave waiting for SMPTE or as a master sending Midi Sync, but I need SONAR to send SMPTE. Is that possible?

Sure can,
goto
View/Toolbars/Sync

options-project (to open dialog box)

on the SYNC TAB check 'Transmit MTC'

Choose your frame rate

In the 'mtc output ports', check off the outputs you want to send mtc on

** Are you sure you want to send MTC and not MMC?

Good Luck!

Thanks for your answer. Unfortunaly SONAR2 doesn't have a SYNC tab in the Options/Project dialog (can open the sync toolbar, but the options there are the same as in Options/Project). There's only a MIDI OUT tab where I can choose to send Midi Sync and/or MMC. But there's no option to send MTC (yes, I do want MTC).

On the clock tab of Options/Project I can choose the framerate for SMPTE/MTC, but that's only for receiving, I guess. Is it that only SONAR2 cannot do it and SOANR3 can? Or am I blind? ;-) I'd really appreciate your help in this.

Maybe it's tme for an upgrade. Have you tried calling tech support? I have never used Sonar 2

If you find a solution let us know!

Good Luck!
