The PPS-2 Plus from JL Cooper is a multi-function, low cost synchronizer, ideal for anyone who owns a sequencer, drum machine, workstation or hard disk recording system and needs to sync to tape. It also provides "Smart FSK" sync to older hardware that requires MIDI clock along with Song Position Pointer.

The PPS-2 reads and generates SMPTE time code and converts SMPTE into MIDI Time Code or Direct Time Lock. It also provides jam sync/regeneration, flywheeling and auto-merge. Optional remote software for Windows and Mac allows the user to set SMPTE frame rate and start time when striping.
