I have a few questions relating to a patch I'm working on with the SPS1 as the heart with a load of modulars in tow. The machine drum clocks the eurorack [Metropolis and Braids] via 2 impulse machines but I wanna change the set up a little and need to free an output but I have nothing currently spare. I figured using midi from SPS1 to this ADDAC 402 midi in and generate a clk instead of the impulse machine thus freeing the output want:
When I press play on the drum machine, the sequences between it and the eurorack sounded wonky each and every time.
So I set up the SPS1 sequencer to play a simple sound on the same beat as the 1/4 note trigger out from the ADDAC (which is generated from midi) and realised it sounds wonky because they're not synced at all. So the midi out plays irrespective of whether the sequencer is played/paused/stopped. Unless you hit play exactly on the beat the sequencer keeps that offset with the midi generated beat and the sequencer.
I hope this makes sense so far? Is there anything that can be done about this?
I also found than when messing with the data entry knobs it would slow the midi clock. Once you stop playing with the data entry, the steady beat returns to where it was but it would seem touching the data entry would kill anything being clocked by the midi and send it out of sync with what was being played/heard from the SPS1 sequencer.
Is this a known thing? Again is there much that can be done about this?
