Syncronisation via Midi Clock works just fine

Dear Rui Nuno Capela,

the sync feature (Midi Clock) of qtractor 0.4.7 works very fine on my system. Thank you very much for sharing qtractor with me/us!

Greetings from Austria,

I should make it clear that Qtractor listens to MIDI clock just to set its current session tempo (BPM). That and SPP (Song Position Pointer) might be the couple which makes it sync altogether (no quite sync'ing, but beat matching, sort of)

Cheers && Thanks

Does MIDI Clock also work with MIDI out?

Can qtractor send MIDI Clock to work as master?

well, answer to that was implicit right on the OP.

just check whether View/Options..../MIDI/Playback/Clock is set to "Output" or "Duplex" (the later will make it also behave as slave).


Hi Rui, Does Qtractor time lock to Midi Clock ? as I can't seem to get it to lock onto my Alesis SR16 midi clock out. It does see Midi Start but after that it seems to free wheel with no sync.

Oh, I am running the Alesis SR16 as master via m-audio interface into QjackCtl 0.5.0 routed to Qtractor 0.9.5 with "Midi Control" set to Duplex or Input.

strictly speaking, qtractor dos not sync/*lock* to MIDI Clock...
as said quite earlier in this topic, it just and only reads the tempo (BPM) from it and sets it accordingly to the current tempo map location bar (usually the main session BPM).


ps. qtractor v0.9.5 is ugly old and decommissioned :) as is also the case for qjackctl v0.5.0. please consider a major update to both accounts. byee
