    The dm is a Boss Dr 880 and the daw is a Yamaha AW16G. Anybody else have these two relatively common devices and know how to sync them with MIDI? Any help would be hugely appreciated. Thanks!

    Provided is a link to the Yamaha website that explain how to sync two AW16G units together using MIDI, which will give you an idea on how to link to the Boss unit to the AW16G.

    Evidently, after reading a little about the AW16G, it generates MTC (MIDI Time Code), and can act as a MIDI master, which means the Boss unit must be setup to act as a slave, and receive/respond to MTC instructions. You will have to dig into the manuals of each unit to learn the specifics on how to set them up.,,CNTID%253D26296%2526CTID%253D,00.html
