MTC output

Could you please explain the MTC output feature ?

Is it to sync tempo with device ?

Outputs Midi Time Code to selected port.

So as above it will send mtc out of the selected midi port. If you then have a device connected to that which recognises mtc then it would slave to the incoming time code. Devices I’m talking about are usually very old synths and drum machines.

Do you need this for anything? I haven’t used mtc for over 20 years.

I was not sure if it is used for sync tempo for example.

It’s not used for anything internal. I used to use it the other way round where mtc was sent from a tape machine (through a converter box) into Cubase so the midi tracks were in sync with the tape. This was when Cubase was midi only
