Realtime Messages and the LFO

Hey guys and girls. Just wondering about the details of the LFO in relation to sync form an external source. When a clock is recieved and tempo is set to ‘ext’ I realise the LFO is synced, but does it begin on the ‘note on’ events or does it begin on the realtime ‘start’ message? Just making sure it wouldnt be possible to have the LFO at the same tempo as my drum machine but on different downbeats like:



Even though they are the same tempo. Thanks in advance!

When sync’ed to the sequencer, the LFO resets themselves on the event that starts the sequencer (note on or start message).
