Sekaiju midi sync issue (2017-07-11 04:22 by Barito #80052)
Hi kuzu, hi guys
I am still toying with this great piece of software.
My drum machine is set to listen to channel 10 for midi inputs and syncing.
I noticed that by setting to "send midi clock" to channel #2 my drum machine (roland tr8) gets synced; sending midi clock to channel 10 has no effect.
Is it a bug eventually?
Another thing: how could you avoid receiving MIDI Machine Control (i.e. START) while set to sync? My drum machine continue to start when i play start on Sekaiju, but I only want it to tempo sync and decide when it should start playing.

A couple of additional tests i made showed that:
- even if i set another receiving channel in my drum machine, only channel #2 from sekaiju works
- using sekainu 5.0, but the same issue is present in sekaiju 4.9. I have not tested older versions.

Thank you for using Sekaiju.

>"send midi clock" to channel #2
First, MIDI Clock has no channel information, unlike MIDI channel message such as note on/off. MIDI Clock is sent not to a "channel" but to a "port". One port has 16 channels. Perhaps your drum machine is connected to one port in the MIDI Device dialog. Sekaiju has multiple output port (1~16). Please check which port your drum machine is connected. And then, please set connected port's output setting.
>how could you avoid receiving MIDI Machine Control (i.e. START) while set to sync?
Sorry, at now, you can only select send / receive "none" or "MIDI clock with MIDI machine control".
If I would have enough time, maybe I will separate these settings, but I have no time to improve Sekaiju because these days company is so busy that I have no holiday. Perhaps only bug fix and small update will be done. Please don't expect so much about this feature.

Thank you Kuzu. I was almost sure the problem was "me".
>Please check which port your drum machine is connected. And then, please set >connected port's output setting.
May I ask you how i could check which port the drum machine is connected to? It's only set to receive midi channel, no other connections.
About the MMC feature, I know you are buisy (you told me 6 month ago when I wrote to you the first time) and I dont want to stress you too much, so keep your time and se will see in the future if some spare time will pop up ;)

Let me rephrase: the only connection to my drum machine is midi IN (PC MIDI OUT > DRUM MIDI IN). How can I check which port it is connected to? I am almost sure is port #2 but I have other instruments i want to check the port they are in.

Ok, I have figured this out myself (very general pourpouse, sorry for asking). To check the port number your usb to midi converter is in, you can use a tiny utility called usb view.
It's very likely that other programs will work well and/or that easier procedures are available for the task.
