Yes, I know that it does not support more sync protocols, but this is still a myth to me. There are already requests from users for that in the forum, but it seems that there is no official plan to implement this functionality. Actually I do not really understand why, because the Pyramid is naturally the center of a production studio without DAW and therefore should support all synchronization features as other sequencers do. It rather seems to me that despite the fact that practically all the other master sequencers do support various sync protocols, the makers of the pyramid decided not to implement it on purpose to make a statement, otherwise I would not understand why we are missing such an essential function (no offense)
The most basic request for such a need is to sync tape, HD recorders, video machines and even DAWs. And no, the HD 24 does not support Midi Clock, as there typically is no BPM information as such on recorded tracks. Synchronization is typically solved by the sequencer’s ability to receive MTC from the machine and send MMC to it. Normally you start the recorder on a certain position and the sequencer follows either in pattern or song mode (like a MPC). The purpose in general is to record synthesizers and drums in sync to the recorded tracks… of course.
Again, as the master sequencer with plenty of functionality, the Pyramid is predestined to control every aspect of a studio and actually it is a bit of shame that it only supports Midi clock
And yes, I am going for the DAWless studio in that case…
