@Brad has just registered this, thanks, Brad, as I have raised it again on the Fixing Cantabile’s Biggest Gripe Topic (as it is my biggest gripe), but I thought I would start a separate thread rather then take the thread I raised it on off topic.
I have raised this before, and I keep thinking surely (and don’t call me Shirley) I cannot be the only person with this request?
So the new request is Ability to send MIDI Clock even when transport is stopped
Please do upvote it if you think the same way as me…
Why I do gripe about lack of this?
For me it is important as I work a lot with tempo synced external synths as well as VSTs.
Consider the case where the last song was in a certain BPM, and when I select a new song that song’s BPM is different. But the synths do not get that new BPM until the song starts, and you thus get artefacts like delay glitches whilst the synth’s sync is settling down.
If the MIDI clock tempo change was active immediately on Song change (and assuming you are not playing anything) then the synths will have time to settle down before I start playing the song.
