I’ve been pulling my hair out with this one for a while—especially trying to sync DAW drums with Midi drums with RYTM drums. But, thanks to this thread (Moving from Octatrack to Push 2) I managed to finally fix my syncing woes with Overbridge, external gear and my DAW.
In short hear is how I did it, I have my RYTM act as a (kind of) Sync box for all my other gear. So my DAW controls the RYTM via OB and it sends the clock and transport. The RYTM receives this and via a Midi cable attached to it’s Midi Out port, sends it’s clock and transport onwards to other gear. In my case I have it running to an empty in on my iConnectMidi4+ which then distributes the midi info onwards.
This simple solution (which I didn’t even think was possible) has got everything dialed in perfectly.
To top it off, sequences seem to stay on the money whether I’m playing patterns from my MD/MnM or if I sequence them from Bitwig - they’re both in sync (I usually could only get one way or the other to work - even if at all).
Oh man, I am so happy right now!
I hope this helps anyone. And apologies if this is common knowledge
