TIME FORMATS some considerations about the supported time formats:

editMidi clock is essential to sync classic drum box to modern setups, for this the KMS is a perfect bridge from sequencer clock to drum box sync.

edit Sync its most peculiar function is the switch between 24 and 48 PPQ- useful if you want to sync 48 PPQ Korg drum machines (e.g Korg KPR-77) to 24 PPQ Roland standard (e.g Roland TR-606) or vice versa.

edit Tape sync: this is now a pretty obsolete standard used by old tape deck multi-track recorder.
