Re: U-SYNC for Windows

Sadness.

I'm so rarely jealous of people using Macs, but this is one of those times. I've been using Windows since v 3.1. And, while I use a Mac everyday for work, I'm not switching my music computer away from Windows.

Re: [BETA Available] Firmware 3.0

I'm actually pretty excited for the "combined" 24P/2.4.P. mode, as this (if I understand correctly) allows for immediate start upon receiving pulses (like 2.4.P. always did) and also us Midronome as master clock when you're not sending it pulses form your DAW (like 24P always did). Previo...

Re: Adjusted to Sync, cannot lock to a tempo

Unfortunately, the sync tool has the same issue. I’ve tried lots of combos of interface mixer volumes and DAW volumes to no avail. Right now the only sync that works- and it does work - is to use the ARA plugin set to sync when playing. That way it syncs from the Midronome when stopped and is synche...

Re: [A] DAW Plugin - community open-source project

Whew. If it’s yellow and yellow is good, then I think it’s good in that regard.

However, I still have the issue of if I stop playing the DAW, the bpm drifts. So I have to set the plugin to only send when the DAW is playing. That way it only drifts for a moment when the DAW stops.

Hi Simon (and community) I've adjusted the Midronome per the videos and documentation to be "in the middle" between the LED changing to red and just turning off. For me this is -4.5 in the DAW. I'm currently just trying to use the pre-generated sync file in Studio 1 6.2.1 on Win11. I've at...

Re: MIDI Forwarding from USB to MIDI-DIN

Seems like, during testing, that some capacity testing would need to be done to get an idea of just how much other MIDI data can flow through each port without disturbing the clock. This'll surely be asked, otherwise. Automation of many parameters of a DAW VST editor out to one or more synths would ...

Re: Sync File Generator - auto file names suggestion

Can the bpm of the sync file be included in the file name?

You all make a very good point about the plugin - practicability is important I get that.

What comes in the box? Does it come with a USB cable?

Hi Simon. Suggestion: on the tech specs and maybe elsewhere I suggest telling people what comes in the Midronome box. Is it just the hardware? Does it come with a USB cable for power? Etc.

Mine has shipped, but the shipping website is… hard to understand when I’ll actually receive it.
