Midi Sync Ableton Octatrack and other devices. Possible? How?

Hello,

 

I would like to know what would be the best solution to perfectly sync Ableton and an Elektron Octatrack plus other midi devices (Electribe EMX, Synths, Kaoss Pad 3).

I must set the Octatrack as Master or its looper machine will not work properly.

Do I have to recur to hardware syncing devices like the Innerclock ones? Are there cheaper ones?

Or may I use a software?

Or what else?

 

Thanks!

    Live as master clock seems the simplest way, a external device just for clock master is good too and maybe the more stable way.

    BUT,

    midi sync uses a lot of cpu, if you play with drum racks in ableton, the cpu is over 50, and the octatrack can stop playing !
