Ya, the box put your chosen smpte on the tape and translated that to 
bars/notes at b/m. A song could be loaded with sysex that had time sig. 
and tempo changes... I never did, because I just recorded without using 
the metronome and so was not on the notes anyway. That seemed to be what 
worked best with the qx7 I used then.

I had a mega2... so no real audio IF. A fostex R8 for which I can no 
longer find tape locally. I missadjusted track 8 to record 10db down so 
there was less crosstalk from the smpte track to audio.
