[ACCEPTED - WIP] Send MIDI Clock from the USB port

Post by Simon »

This one is pretty easy: the USB port on the device would also be used to send MIDI Clock to your DAW, or any software that would accept it.

Notice that with the current device, all you need is a simple MIDI to USB cable to be able to do this, for example this one: https://www.thomann.de/intl/miditech_midilink_mini.htm or this one: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail ... ype-a-6-ft

Would you like to see this implemented? Any thoughts on the matter?

I also support MIDI clock over USB. I use a Bome Box as the centre of my MIDI studio and it has only one DIN port which is already in use, but it allows for a large number of USB devices hooked through a powered hub. Ideally I'd like to have the Midronome offer two USB virtual ports over the one USB jack, one which sends Start and one which does not.

Great idea about the two virtual ports! :)
Problem is more the hardware but if that's sorted might as well make two virtual ports instead of one ;)

+1 for midi over usb. one usb cable and having the midi clock without the audio cable would be a great future. but the plugin would als ne working with the usb only connection.

That will not replace the Audio sync with the DAW. This feature is only to send MIDI Clock to DAWs that accept it, i.e. Ableton Live and Bitwig Studio (as far as I know). All other DAWs will still need the audio sync (which is much more precise anyways) to get the Midronome in time with their transport.
