send MIDI clock

did you know you first have to engage the SYNC field to whatever to even send out MIDI clock?
if you unbox and don't 'touch' this field, your MPC will not send out MIDI clock
if you change the SYNC field and set it to any mode (even off), MPC will send out clock signals
weird, no?
bug, no?

  • Hey tiger001,

    Thanks for posting!

    I simulated the steps you outlined above using MIDI-OX to monitor the incoming MIDI signal. However, I was not able to replicate the issue you described. MIDI Clock did not send data when initially disabled as expected. When enabled, I could see the clock readout sync to the Live's BPM in the monitor. Immediately after turning Sync Send off, the MC data stopped.

    Do you mind explaining how you were testing the MIDI Clock sent from your Live?

    Looking forward to your response!

  • ok
    so i got my X with 2.4 (freshly) installed, then did a reset (preferences)
    i never used the MIDI clock out, but had the MIDI clock out (1/2/3/4) settings active
    then updated to 2.5 but had not activated SYNC button yet/ever - because i thought it was for MIDI slaving - i never noticed those MIDI in/out monitor buttons but after the successful activation of MIDI clock send
    so i had to pinpoint why a device was not reacting to the MIDI clock sent by the MPC
    and did the MIDI-OX test, just like you
    there was no MIDI system realtime signal
    only when i activated the SYNC button (i have to add that i messed a bit with the MTC/MIDI clock out settings before that - to no avail) that i could see in MIDI-OX (and my device) system realtime messages coming in // when this was OK, i could uncheck the SYNC button to keep MIDI clock signals being send from the MPC, also when opening new projects and SYNC button not activated
