Syncing two computers: slave has signal but doesn't play
I tried searching for this but couldn't find any answers:
We want to sync a mac (master) and a pc (slave) via midi. The signal goes mac -> firewire cable -> external soundcard -> midi cable -> external soundcard -> firewire cable -> pc.
I think all the settings are right (sending sync and remote out from the mac to the soundcard, receiving both in to the pc from its soundcard). I get a sync signal on the slave (upper yellow light blinking right next to EXT-button on the upper right). But when I press EXT to start syncing the slave doesn't want to play - doesn't launch clips and doesn't start global play. And oh yeah, the mac master is playing.
We really want to sync them using midi - We tried this trick: and it worked with launching but definately wasn't in sync. And we don't really want to use LAN or a bunch of other software to sync, seems a hassle and might drain cpu..
