Hi fellow synth users,
I'm having some serious trouble with syncing my MODX motion sequencer and arpeggiator to an external device, in this case Ableton Live which is acting as a clock master.
Receiving tempo information from Ableton is working fine as do program changes. So generally MIDI info is being transmitted to the MODX flawlessly.
What I want to achieve: I want to trigger the motion sequencer or arpeggiator and have it synced to my MIDI clock, so the patterns are always on the grid. Therefore it would have to continue running in the background and just be heard when I press down any keys.
The specific problem is: Using the SYNC-OFF function makes the pattern run in the background but then there is a shift in the start point of the arpeggio making it unusable. Even if I start the arpeggio pattern by pressing down a key within the required quantisation range it still seems to be starting at a different point within the pattern each time.
I have put every single setting I found on the MODX and in tutorials and on this forum on "SYNC", yet it still gives me inconsistent results. I've also updated to the latest firmware version 2.51 so that shouldn't be an issue either.
Is there a way to consistently sync my MODX to MIDI clock and if so, HOW??? I've spent roughly 10 hours on the problem already, so it'd be great if someone had an idea how to fix it.
Thanks in advance, cheers!
