MIDI time code (MTC)

On the Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI), the time code used is the MTC time code. This is an eight-digit time code that is generated from the SMPTE time

code and can also be converted back to it. The MTC time code provides control information in addition to the time in hours, minutes and seconds

. The MTC time code is integrated into the MIDI data stream with its synchronization information and supports the synchronous control of audio sequences. For this purpose, the MTC time code can be generated in a master station and synchronize the sequence in several connected slave stations.
