    I'm startingf an ambitious project in pro-tools with my old Boss BR-8 (Roland). Using a midi cable I am tring to slave pro-tools to the BR-8. I have had luck in getting the Br-8's transport to control the transprt in Pro-Tools. The big problem is that there is a playback speed difference with both systems. Pro-tools runs faster even though both tempos are the same. Does anyone have any tips for doing this in pro-tools? I have information flowing, but its appears to 'breakdown' when it hits pro-tools.

    Here's what a BR-8 is:

    Sample rate??

    Midi Time Code rate??

    Do they match?

    I'm using MTC at 30 ndf. Sample rate of 44.1. Things are not syncing up. I notice that the time on the br-8 will read hours, minutes, seconds then frames but the frames will be a decimal like 29.98 but pro-tools only shows time used, so an example would be 1:24.333 one minute twenty four seconds, but now theres a 3 point decimal wheras the other unit is divided to frames. This has me pulling hair.

    Yes, Protools LE wont show timecode without DVToolkit, but the settings in Protools do match the settings (MTC and Sample rate) on your BR-8?

    Also verify Protools isnt set for pull up/ pull down in session setup??
