Hey all. First time caller here.
I’ve been messing around with the digitone’s midi implementations and have come across some hurdles. Its unfortunate there’s no sysex for transport control but i am able to control play and stop with Realtime Play and Stop with a midi foot controller. Only thing is that when play is engaged the digitone hangs for a bit before it actually plays (not conducive to playing live).
When I engage realtime play/start the digitone will display ‘midi’ in the bottome left hand corner
It will stay like that until it plays then it will revert back to…
Note: sometimes it will display PREP. Not sure what that means.
I guess its waiting for clock messages but im not sending clock just Realtime Start/Play? Does this require a clock message before play can start.
If i turn off clock receive in the settings then the digitone will not respond to Realtime messages. Does anyone know a way around this?
Also (and maybe i should start another post but) is there a way to select the active audio track via midi? So i could use my foot controller the select the track i want to noodle around on via an external keyboard?
Using the morningstar mc6ii for all this fyi
