Okay, I have a Scarlett 18i8 connected to my MacBook. I also have a piano connected via USB to the MacBook.
One of the musicians has a 19" rack mount delay unit with MIDI in/out, traditional 5-pin. Occasionally he plays with a delay that's horribly out of sync with the rest of the band.
If I enable SYNC in Ableton's preferences for the Scarlett 18i8's MIDI port, will a clock signal be sent out of the 5-pin connection on the Scarlett to the delay hardware? Is it that simple? Do I need SYNC and REMOTE or just SYNC?
I'm trying to avoid adding a USB to MIDI adapter to the macbook, and if the Scarlett 18i8 can double as that, then I think I've solved the issue. Am I on the right track?
