Sure … we can use the “LIVE RECORDING MODE” for this.
Best practice would be to have the DN and the DAW to be syncronized, and one of them set to be “master-clock” and the other to “slave”. This can be done in the MIDI preferences of the DAW and in the GLOBAL SETTINGS/MIDI CONFIG/SYNC menu of the DN respectively.
Let’s assume a very basic scenario and that the DAW is master.
The DAW has to be set to send out the clock and the midi commands for start and stop. The DN has to be set to use the external clock and receive the midi commands for start and stop. If the DN is set to recording it will wait, until the DAW starts to transmit the midi notes and corresponding CCs.
BUT … most DAWs use a linear sequencer and the DN has a step sequencer. This means that the DN can only record a maximum of 16 steps per “bar”. If the DAW sends more notes, notes will get lost.
