Auto Enable External Sync

Hi there,

I am trying to get Logic 7 on a powerbook to lock to external sync provided by the BigBen via a connection to my moTU 896.

Even though I have
sync : "autoenable external sync"
audio sync : "external"

Thre little blue light on the transport bar for sync does not appear to light up when I go into play OR record.

Should this button light up?
What settings need made on logic?

I must say this element of logic is a bit confusing - especially when the sync options are : Internal, MTC etc....and I just want to see a "lock to external wordclock"

All help appreciated - need to get this sorted pronto for sessions
Cheers
A

If your MOTU locks to BB's WC (what a sentence!),
you're all set. Leave Logic's sync at internal
Logic uses the clock chosen in your hardware setup.

The external sync function you mention, is ment for chasing
drifting clocks like a VCR and so on (films, commercials..)

Nope.
And if you at a later stage need to work with varispeed sources,
BB will help you out.

Good luck.
