Hello All. I'm new to the forums. I couldn't find a specific post for my question. This is for anybody that is a MIDI Guru. I Have a question about MIDI setup between my DR-770 Drum Machine and my VS-1680. I want my 770 to start at the same time I press record on the 1680? What parameters matter?

Just to get the ball rolling and because I don't use midi sync much these days.....

I'd just like to say that whatever you do, you will experience some amount of lag between a button press of the VS and playback of the drums with MIDI. It is common practice to set up your Song with at least a couple of measures of count-in to allow the machines to obtain solid sync, so be prepared by arranging your Songs in that manner - with an offset of at least two measures. Account for this offset amount, if/when creating tempo maps as well by making tempo changes occur as many measures late as there is offset. In other words, if there's a tempo or time change at bar 60 and you have an offset of two measures at the beginning, then make your tempo/time change at bar 62.

You'll probably want two midi cables connecting the two units. MTC is the usual sync mode for this following stuff, but I think it depends on what you drums' preference is. Drums set to receive and 1680 set to transmit most of the time.

Beyond that, I have to dig too deep into murky matter. Hope this is helpful.
