cool, i have to try that absolutely! maybe is also on the manual?

well, in my purpose i saw that mostly to use it live and direct on stage (but from what i understand it doesn't layers, anyway i got some other pedal wich do that); yes, it was OT, sorry guys :)

Re: "The pre-MIDI era" questions

With FSK it's just synchronizes with the tape, so you have to start at the beginning of the tape any time you want to record something. Some FSK systems support MIDI song position pointer (SPP) so you can FF/REW and the timing syncs up properly. Depends on the specific sequencer or sync box (RTFM)....

Re: "The pre-MIDI era" questions

i didn't knew that with FSK we can record also tempo change, that's cool! i tried it on playback, i sent to the smartsync the fsk of 2 chained patterns with different tempos and it works. i also tried a strange thing: i turned the yamaha mt4x pitch knob (tape speed control) and the sp606 sequencer f...

Re: "The pre-MIDI era" questions

You set the song start and tempo changes on the PPS100, or your sequencer if it supports MTC. In addition - since it's using time code, your computer/sequencer knows exactly where you are on the tape. You can punch in and record anywhere along the length of the tape. With FSK it's just synchronizes...

Re: "The pre-MIDI era" questions

The PPS-100 works great. I used it on Track 6 with my Sansui 6-track cassette recorder recording SMPTE in the 90s. So much more usable than FSK. what are the main differences with the FSK method? madtheory told that SMPTE was better, it ran the length of the tape, allowed you to leave song structur...

Glad you figured it out. Even though what you did is exactly what everyone was telling you to do... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RTFM I could mock your second language too, but chose not to. S'amuser. ;) And I did actually mean "It". You really don't get it do you? C'est la vie. PPS-100 would be a ...

Re: "The pre-MIDI era" questions

Actually it is "complicated", more than you assume anyway. You're missing an important point, which I think is why you can't get it to work. FSK is an audio signal, not a MIDI signal. FSK gets converted to MIDI clock and Song Position Pointers by your Midiman box. But you have to send clock and SPP...

Re: "The pre-MIDI era" questions

Yes because the Zoom has MIDI clock, so it doesn't need FSK. Tape doesn't have MIDI at all, so FSK is a way to sync the digital to the analogue (tape has to be master). But you need the MIDI clock sent to the Midiman to generate tempo for the FSK signal so you can put that on the tape. See? It's co...
