My guess is you got lucky having two seperate machines with the same clock.  I had two ua5's > h120 rigs that matched up perfectly every time!

I'm playing around with an R-88.  Anyone else currently using one?

This is where your field experience and mine will diverge.  I have also synced my R-44 many times with acidjack's as well as running tests with just a 1/8" TRS cable to master>slave them and they have NEVER clock-synced 8 (or 6) tracks unless we have connected the SPDIF either directly or through another device running as a master clock (a USBPre); I'm not talking about an analog patch, mind you.  I suppose this is one of those "YMMV" situations.  Pretty sure this may have also been addressed in the R-44 thread without any solid confirmation either way from Roland but I can't recall.

Old thread, old news- but it's been reported that the key to keeping clock sync with master>slave linked R-44s is to turn off pre-record on both machines.

As per the R-88, what the use is mixing on the machine when you can't adjust delay????

Delay is adjustable per input channel when recording.

It was my hope that delay could also be adjusted per output channel upon playback, but that does not appear to be the case.
