  8. Go in Ovation settings > Player Units > MIDI and select the MIDI port created in RTP MIDI (RAVENNA LTC in our example).
    Enable MIDI and set the Virtual MIDI port to MIDI1. 

     
  9. Go in Ovation settings > Controller Units > MIDI and select the MIDI port created in RTP MIDI (RAVENNA LTC in our example).
    Enable MIDI and set the Virtual MIDI port to MIDI1. 
    Enable MIDI TimeCode (MTC).

You can now use this MTC1 as LTC source or generator port.

 

It is highly recommended to use a common video ref between Horus/Hapi and the other devices that will use the TimeCode.
Otherwise, the synchronization between the devices will drift over time.
