Default Re: SYNCH ISSUE-MTC TO SMPTE

In order for any system to sync "lock" including LE you need to have both clock and positional reference. LE can receive clock via it's S/PDIF i/o or optical i/o and gets it's position reference (MTC) via midi i/o. If LE only receives MTC alone then it will drift or "free wheel" over time. The best solution is to use a Master Clock like a MOTU Digital Time Piece. This unit works well because it has the S/PIDF i/o, smpte i/o and midi i/o. The DTP is also great for video work as well because it has video black i/o as well.
I use it to gen-lock LE to a VTR.
