Brad, I'm going to mess with this when I get some time. The VS has options for turning on Sysex receive, and local control off. Also, when I first installed the RPC-1 I had the 2480 slaved to Cubase and it worked quite well that way, so I'm guessing that it should receive MMC with no problem, but this is about the limit of my Sysex understaning, at this point.
I was hoping that Falcon or Dot might have some words of wisdom on this, but so far no joy.
If I can get it to work, you can be sure I'll post the announcement.
The Cooper piece looks really interesting but a little too pricey to find it's way to the top of my priority list at the moment.
