Re: "Sync Signal Contents" questions

which is the signal generated by the Midronome VST plugin. The device uses the higher pulse to know when the bar starts and will currently not work without this. But if you just want to sync the tempo, I could easily make a mode where it syncs to a 24 ppq signal, or even a "any" ppq signa...

Re: Sync to any regular signal (pulses) from 1ppq to 24ppq

This feature is about having the possibility to slave the Midronome to any regular pulses, either sent by a CV gate output, or by an audio output, from 1ppqn to 24ppqn. Many hardware synths allow syncing to 48ppq (eg devices from Arturia or Behringer). And man, wake up! In 2022 we don't use the wor...

Re: Latency adjustment

Hi! I'm really interested in buying Midronome, but negative MIDI clock offset is a must for me. Why? There are only two ports and I don't see the difference between 0 offset paired positive one and a 0 offset paired with a negative one. Just let the slow devices use 0 offset and let the fast ones g...

Re: (web based) Sysex editor/configurator

Of course it is possible to write a configurator for Midronome that sends its data as sysex commands. You don't even need to connect Midronome via USB. Any MIDI port attached to the PC will do. If it is web based note that Safari and iOS browser won't work. Safari, which is based on WebKit, will not...

Some Eurorack modules have expander modules. So if it makes sense because of size or production costs extra outputs may be put on another module connected at the back with a cable (a ribbon cable is common for such tasks).

Another use case for CV: different accent, ie voltage, patterns for the signals. Some drum modules have inputs that are voltage sensitive (eg accent inputs Tiptop's 808/909 clones).

You don't need multiple clock outs, and a simple clock dividers can give you that. I disagree. I would need to add 3 clock dividers which take up space and cost extra money while within Midrorack I get them for "free". With Midrorack I (so my assumption) I can also get offbeat trigger sig...

Re: Offset and time signature

Well, I meant with 0.25 ppq and the offset you can get an arbitrary single hit anywhere within a measure.

But a random value setting the chance that a click will be sent would of course be fun.

Re: Offset and time signature

The offset would come handy if you want one off the clocks to tick off-beat (eg for house/techno open-hats 1ppq shifted an 8th).

If you could set the clock rate even slower you can do back-beats at 2 and 4 (0.5 ppq). At 0.25 ppq we get a single click at an arbitrary position within the measure.

Or only one DIN socket and two TRS jacks to keep the size of the box the same.

Re: different even and odd time divisions for the CV-clock

On a stroll today it came to my mind that it would work out like that.

So to spare me the maths (and confuse my old brain), the UI could name the musical terms along with the ppq :)

[IMPLEMENTED] different even and odd time divisions for the CV-clock

One pulse could run straight 32rds and the other 16th triplets. With clock dividers in the rack and logic modules you can then do rhythms with triplets and hemiolas. AFAIK the MIDI clock is built around mutliples of 12 to allow for quadruple and triple meters as 12 is divisible by 4 and 3. So techni...

A label on the back on is the least of the troubles you can have with any gear :) I thought about clock too. Actually sequencer modules use that term for their, well, clock input jack. So "sync/clock" would match for DIN sync synths and Eurorack sequencers. The term CV is usually used for ...

Re: CV-clock start/stop and 48ppq

For Eurorack either a dual pulse or a start/stop signal is useful. Could you precise what you mean by start/stop signal? Do you mean the same signal as the one on the ring in the DIN sync spec (" Ring | start/stop | stop = 0 volt, start = +5 volt " as explained on https://en.wikipedia.org...

Or abusing it as a not so slow LFO due to the AC coupling. But as we're talking audio rate I cannot think of a an application where I'd need a tempo synced LFO at that speed.

Why is the TRS labelled "CV"?

IMHO it's confusing if you use it as a DIN sync style TRS connector or when using it as a clock signal for Eurorack. A DIN sync is not a "CV". And I have never encountered a module to use "CV" for trigger or gate signals. Not the biggest issue, but printing "sync/clock"...

Many analog synths and controllers (eg by Arturia or Behringer) use a TRS with a pulse signal (up to 48ppq) and start/stop signal. Cannot say offhand which signal is on tip and wich on ring. Usually the jack is labelled "sync" or "sync in". Sometimes it is only a TS jack with pul...

Re: usb c

Just one word: NO. Only USB B is roadworthy. It's fiddly and prone to wear out.

If USB C is used please consider adding a dedicated power connector jack.
