MIDI clock sync from Traktor

Hello there,
first I would like to tell that I spent the last two hours reading posts before to start this new topic.

My problem:
As some of you probably know, Traktor can send a midi clock signal to another software. I did it with Ableton Live and everything works which meand that the BPM on Live is “controlled” by Traktor. I would like to do the same thing but I don’t know how to get the midi clock signal from Traktor into Max.

Does anyone knows what can I do?!

Thank you so much.

Try the rtin object feeding a sync~ object.

It seems to receive something but it doesn’t look like the real BPM. What I really need to see on my Max patch is the BPM value.
Any suggestion?

Thanks for your reply by the way.

sync~ needs to have the dac~ turned on to work. It spits out a message in the form bpm x, so you need a route object to split it out.

Thanks a lot!
This works perfectly!
Now I can finally go ahead with my patch.
