HD24 MMC problem

Basically i'm doing a university project using all hardware and am having a problem with sending MTC out of the HD24 i'm using. I need to be able to start/stop either a TR707, Doepfer MSY2 or MMT8 (only devices I have that use MIDI) via MTC so I can easily multitrack this stuff into a more interesting composition instead of recording just one long jam.

Whatever MIDI device works will be clocking a TR606 via DIN sync which will be triggering an SH101 and a couple of Doepfer modulars. I have MTC and MMC send out of the HD24 enabled, the MSY2 has a clock LED which lights up when MIDI out from the HD24 is connected but the stop/start light doesnt. External MIDI is enabled on the MMT8, the 707 is working clocked from my DAW so I cant really figure out whats going on. The cables I have work for both MIDI and DIN sync duties between all my gear but just dont seem to want to work with the HD24.

Any ideas would be very much appreciated!

I sometimes slave-sync my DAW (DP) to my HD24 via adat sync using a Motu interface. While I've never tried it, the DAW should then be able to send MTC or midi clock to other devices. I'm pretty sure the sync signal being sent out of the HD24's sync connector is not midi time code, but rather its own protocol.

Ah the problem is that the title of my project is 'Composition and production of electronic music without the use of computers' so i'm trying not to use any computers. Obviously the TR707 or MMT8 will be managing timing, just need stop/start functions to work so when i hit record on the HD24 all my stuff will start running.

My HD24 handles MMC/MTC just fine with my sequencer. I don't remember any special trick to make it work.
