I think you are referring to MIDI clock and MIDI start, which is transmitted…
But MMC (Play) is *not* transmitted, neither is MIDI time code.
Most DAWs don’t sync to MIDI clock nowadays, only MIDI time code, which is usually generated by a hardware audio recorder, not hardware sequencers. MIDI clock is tempo based, but MMC is absolute time.
I don’t think it would be difficult to add MIDI Time Code generation and MMC to the Octopus, but you would always need to start the DAW from the beginning of the song since the Octopus wouldn’t know what time code to calculate in the middle of a track.
