Resync (restart) MIDI msg every X bars

Post by Simon »

Hi :)

Reptil from gearspace ( https://gearspace.com/board/reviews/137 ... onome.html ) mentioned that it could be useful to have the Midronome automatically send a restart/resync MIDI message every X bar.

Just FYI the resync/restart function is already implemented, pressing on the play button for one second will get the device to send such a message at the beginning of the next bar.

But Reptil mentioned a more specific case, where one of your machine will go out of sync at the end of its sequencer (because it is a bit slow). In this case having the device send such a message automatically every x bars (the problematic sequence being exactly x bars long) will be useful.

It could be implemented for both MIDI ports, or only one MIDI port, or each MIDI port separately.

Let me know what you think :)

Cheers

the big knob is endless right :D

i know the more features the more complex navigation will be. and if there will be a v2 or bigger brother, you could squeeze in features which would not fit now.

Hi everyone!
I think this is a crucial function for keeping some slaved sequencers that are behaving badly, in time.
I understand you want to avoid function creep, Simon. Appreciate that.
Bit of a deal maker, this one, in my opinion!
greets!
