Synching psr 770 to synth sequencer
« on: November 21, 2022, 05:55:26 PM »
 Is there an easy way to synch a Synth sequencer ( kord minilogue XD ) to a PSR 770 style ?   thanks for any help or suggestions on this.

Hi texzen,

According to the manual, the Korg minilogue can be synchronized with an external MIDI clock source if button "6" (GLOBAL 4) is set to "Auto (MIDI)" for "Clock Source".

In any case you need a MIDI cable connection between the DIN MIDI OUT of the PSR-S770 and the DIN MIDI IN of the minilogue.

On the S770, it is best to set one of the preset MIDI templates "All Parts" or "KBD & Style" under "Function > MIDI". Then press "EDIT" (lower button "8") and make sure that "CLOCK:INTERNAL" and "TRANSMIT CLOCK:ON" are set in the "System" tab. If it fits like this, press the "Exit" button twice to exit the MIDI display.

If the current setting is "TRANSMIT CLOCK:OFF", set this parameter to ON and then press "Exit" button 1 time to leave the MIDI Edit level (you will see the 10 preset templates again). Now switch to the USER tab with the "TAB" buttons and press "SAVE" to save the modified MIDI template there. (Please use a meaningful file name.)

Now make sure that the newly saved User MIDI Template is actually selected. Finally, close the MIDI display with the "Exit" button, and actually it should work now. Please see also the attached screenshot.

Best regards,
They always said: "This is not possible!"  Then someone came and - just did it!

Never put the manual too far away.  There's more in it than you think!
