Tempo Object and Midi Clock

Hi All,

I’m trying to setup a simple patch which would synchronize a Tempo object to an incoming Midi Clock from another app.

I’ve successfully got a patch with the tempo object driving a bunch of other objects using MAx’s internal clock. Now I want to grab an available Midi Clock from another app.

I’m trying to use a sync~ object. I can get the sync~ object to receive the incoming Midi clock and output a heartbeat, but I need beat subdivisions, so simple 1/4 notes won’t do.

How do I create a link between the output of the sync~ object and the Tempo object, so that the Tempo object actually locks its tempo to that external Midi Clock?

Very confused.

I’m aware of setclock… but its use is very unclear to me for this purpose.

Thanks!

Valentin

Have a look at [rate~] in conjunction with [sync~].

Is there a simpler way to lock the tempo object to an external MIDI clock , not using sync~ ?

It seems silly to need to use audio-rate processes to get a simple object like Tempo (which does exactly what I need) to take an external clock.

I could use Metro or Tempo to drive my events internally, I just need to clock them to another appp simply – lol

Thanks!

Thanks!

RTIN works perfectly :-)

I am grabbing the “248″ clock msgs and filtering down using lnth.

All good!
