Hi folks. In a setup that includes a prophet Rev2, an Sh01a and a TR08 which one would you suggest to be the master and why? Pros and cons? Thank you in advance 😊

TR08; in general, drum machines running off their own internal clock is always preferable. You can use the sync / trigger out into the SH01A and MIDI into the Rev2.

And when thinking about a traditional musical group, the drummer keeps time (mostly).  Converse effect is everything starts playing when you hit start on your drummachine, which is not really a big issue.
