I need to know if I can sync a Tascam 388 Studio 8 and an Alesis HD24? I need to basicly lock these two machines together. The HD24 has ADAT sync in and out on 9- pin connectors and MIDI in/out. The Tascam has SMPTE thru a Malco 354-38 pin plug(or Elco 8016 Series).
Thank YOU for your time and effort

Not without a huge amount of custom made interfacing effort, not worth it.

Thanks for the opinion, but I really want to know how it can be done. It might not be worth the effort for you but would be well worth the effort for me.
Thanks

There are two completely different proprietary control systems, and therefore more worth it to buy ready made units that were designed to interface together. Designing a custom interface costs much more than the ready made method, Sorry.

I understand that the SMPTE can be converted to MIDI time code and MIDI time code to SMPTE, and the HD24 can generate MIDI time code. I am not concerened with the cost. I need to know what equipment is needed. I need to find a way to sync an analogue tape system to a digital system, blending the two systems. Again, I am not concerned with the cost. I did not ask if it was cost effective. With all due respect, the question remains, how can this be done. That is what I need to know.
