ya, I am an arrogant SOB about my pro tools skills, true... cool that they asked you to beta, I wouldn't have enough time for that, although it sounds fun. from what I've read here the RC-50 is not a fan of clocking to other devices so I haven't even gone down that road. I guess I should try at least clocking PT to the RC-50 and see what happens. as I said in my previous email, my fix so far has been to make PT's tempo 119.95 when the RC-50 is at 120, and so far that's ok. thanks for the help.
