I was wondering if there is some thing(s) to get PD to run along a standard Midi sequencer. Like getting the BPM and play/stop/MMC informations?
One of my objective is create complex and/or evolved Midi controler variation without drawing it within a sequencer window. A simple exemple would be to create an LFO with expon variation of the amplitude with and increasing random flcutuation ... my objective is to inform PD of the sequencer bpm and start/stop moment.
Any suggestion or simply object name?
Midi clock, sync, PD following a sequencer?
Along the same lines, I'm interested in getting PD to work *as* a MIDI sequencer. Specifically, I want to send a MIDI Clock over our LAN to a few audio workstations to get them to sync up. I've got the netsend and netreceive working, but I haven't found an object to send MIDI Clock over it.
this is a windows one that sends midi to all devices on your computer, but it sux cos you gotta pay $129 for it.
the same sorta thing for osX
...not really what you're looking for though, is it?
as far as pd objects go: check this thread from the mailing list:
just found this too.....for midi-syncing any apps within windows. it's free too, which is good.
Hey, that's perfect, yeah. Now all I need is a PD object that generates MIDI Clock. Anyone know of something like that? Also, when is win32 PD going to support the 'midiout' object?
As I understand (with one minute spent on the yoke pages), midi yoke can be used to route any midi signals from two applications? Like VAC (Virtual Analog Cable) soft/driver for audio streaming? If yes, (and only if yes) that doesn't help me to get the bpm/clock information since I already have some sort of midi yoke application with my sound card (Pulsar II).
I have spent few minutes with [midiclkin] and and just don't get anything. Even if my sequencer is sending everything like : clock, start, stop, position, etc. (I use a midi monitor (visual) to intercept everything passing from my sequencer to PD, and th clock is there!).
But as I see from a hardoff link to the mailing list : midiclkin seems to be under construction ... zut alors!
I would really like to know if [midirealtimein] is giving something effective to someone, somewhere (pulsation or time?) ...
Personnally, I send a false clock via a control change.
It does'nt solve all the problems but helps sometimes...
I had finally "solved" my problem with a similar method. Using some note on a given channel of a given midi port, I start/stop my sequencer-type PD patchs. It work fine, surely approximative but fine. But you need lot of midi port. I use my pulsar2 4in/4out midi ports between the pci card and the softs to create various links between the software.
