To create a Master/slave  you have to adjust the MIDI settings in each box.
 
On the Master H9...
 
Press and hold the HOTKNOB button and Right Footswitch simultaneously for a few seconds to enter System Mode. Upon entering System Mode, you’re at the top level menu selection. The Left and Right Footswitch LEDs will flash RED continuously to remind you that you’re in this special mode.
At the top level, turn the Knob to scroll through to [MIDI]. Press the HOTKNOB button to select it.
        Turn the Knob to scroll thru menu items until you get to
 
    [PGM.XMT]
Press the HOTKNOB button to select. Turn the Knob to set MIDI Program Change transmit to ON. If ON, a MIDI Program change message is transmitted whenever a Footswitch is pressed for Preset load.

      Press the PRESETS button once to back up one level to MIDI menu.

      with the knob scroll to

[XMT.MAP] to Create a MIDI Program Change Transmit Map

When the Left Footswitch loads a Preset, a MIDI Program Change message can be transmitted from the MIDI Out jack or USB to control an external device like another H9
 
To Create a MIDI Program Change transmit map, press the HOTKNOB button to access the MIDI transmit map for editing. The Left field displays the Preset number (P1 to P99). The right field displays either OFF or the Prg No. (0-127). Default map: Prg No. 0 - 99 map to Presets P1 to P99.
 
Press the Left Footswitch to select Preset field (indicated by the flashing Left Footswitch LED), turn the Encoder to select the Preset.
  Press the Right Footswitch to select Prg No. field (indicated by the flashing Right Footswitch LED), turn the Encoder to select the corresponding number.
 
When you're done with your mapping then
 
  Press the PRESETS button once to back up one level to MIDI menu.
 
With the knob scroll to [CLK.OUT] and press the HOTKNOB button. If ON, the H9 will transmit its tempo as a MIDI Clock.
 
Press the PRESETS button twice to go to the main System menu. Press the HOTKNOB button and the RIGHT FTSW. You're done with the Master H9.
 
 
On the SLAVE H9...
 
Press the HOTKNOB button and the RIGHT FTSW to go into the SYSTEM MENU.
Scroll to [CLK.IN] and press the HOTKNOB button. Set it to ON and then press PRESETS twice to go to the main system menu
This allows the slave H9 to listen to the MIDI IN for tempo.
 
Press and the HOTKNOB button and the RIGHT FSTW together for a few seconds to exit SYSTEM mode.
 
Now connect your MASTER H9's MIDI OUT to the MIDI IN of the SLAVE H9. Put the MASTER H9 in Tap Tempo MODE and try it out. You should see the tempos on both units sync up. Then put it in PRESETS mode to try a program change on the MASTER H9. You should see the SLAVE H9 change presets according to your map in the MASTER H9. The default RECEIVE CH is set to OMNI, so if you are having problems with the H9's not talking to each other, make sure their [RCV.CH] setting in the MIDI system settings are matching.

If the slave H9's MIDi output is set to THRU will it pass the PC and clock on to a third device?
