How to setup midi sync between analog synths with Grandmother and OB-6

Sponsor plug: see Innerclock Systems for rock solid syncing.

"I received a question for how to set up the Sequential Circuits OB-6 as a master clock that can drive the Moog Grandmother to sync the two synths in a DAW-less environment. This is a universal setup process, where one synth has to be the master clock, and the other sync has to receive the master clock and sync its note attacks.

One caveat is that the old MIDI protocol that is used outside of a DAW is not extremely stable. I got lucky in this video, where clock drift didn't happen, but before the convenience of computers, electronic musicians used to buy expensive Master MIDI clocks to drive all synths from one location."
