TX–6 can synchronize pocket operators using the aux and cue outputs. here's how to maximize your pocket operator setup using TX–6 and some splitter cables:
by using TX–6 to output a sync signal, you can tempo control your pocket operators, and by daisy chaining them using splitter cables, you can sync an entire chain, while still keeping individual audio control per track. TX–6 is the master and will start, stop and control the tempo of the entire setup.
make sure you have the following connections:
- TX–6 main out –> OB–4 line in using a 3.5 mm mini jack to mini jack cable.
- TX–6 cue out –> PO #1 in using a 3.5 mm mini jack to mini jack cable.
- PO #1 out –> PO #2 in (L) + TX–6 in 1 (R) using a splitter cable.
- PO #2 out –> PO #3 in in (L) + TX–6 in 2 (R) using a splitter cable.
- PO #3 out –> TX–6 in 3 using a 3.5 mm mini jack to mini jack cable.
TX–6 setup, from factory reset:
- tap cue, hold shift + turn select until you see the number 8 in the display. tap shift.
- tap select to show the metronome and make sure it is stopped.
- select the tempo you want.
pocket operator setup:
- PO #1 - hold the function button and press bpm until it says SY3.
- PO #2 - hold the function button and press bpm until it says SY3.
- PO #3 - hold the function button and press bpm until it says SY2.
- tap play on each pocket operator to have it wait for a sync signal.
now, press select on TX–6 and the pocket operators should start playing. try adjusting the tempo on TX–6 - the tempo of the pocket operators should follow. adjust the individual levels for each unit and have fun performing!
pro-tip: by using the usb-c port you can even add an OP–1 field or OP–Z to the mix. imagine the possibilities!
