If I start one deck playing, then press Sync, the Sync button of course lights up, and the deck assumes the master.
If I then go to another deck and start it playing the Sync button blinks. I also can’t hit Master, it doesn’t do anything. But it seems like the deck is in fact pitch synced up with the master deck.
If I then hit Sync on that second deck, the Sync button stops blinking, and I can hit Master and it’ll assume the master role.
This “blinking Sync button” behavior doesn’t seem to be documented.
All that the manual mentions is:
- Sync/SyncOff:Press this button to activate Sync. To sync two or more SC6000 PRIME units, press Sync on the unit that you want to control the BPM, which becomes the “master.” After Sync is activated on that unit, press Sync on any additional units. The tempo of each unit will immediately synchronize to match the tempo of the master unit. To deactivate Sync, press the Sync button again, or press and hold Shift and press Sync, depending on the setting of Sync Button Action in the Preferences.
- Master: Press this button to set this SC6000 PRIME unit as the one that controls the master tempo. All connected SC6000 PRIME units with Sync activated will use this tempo. If you stop the “master” SC6000 PRIME, the next- longest-playing SC6000 PRIME in the setup will automatically become the new “master” (unless you change it manually).
Can someone describe what this behavior indicates exactly?
