MIDI Clock [added in 1.60]
« on: January 07, 2012, 05:00:14 PM »
Hello there!
this is my first Post on the Forum.
I am looking forward to getting a PreenFM in the next batch. Great work with this one!

reading the Manual and in the Forum i started wondering, if it is possible to sync the LFOs and Sequencer by Midi Clock. i didn`t find anything about that.
it it is not possible, this is kind of a feature request  ;D

it would be really nice to be able to do so, at least with the sequencer.
i don`t really have a clue about programming,but i imagine if it is not implemented yet, it might be quite a piece of work to deal with midi clock. so maybe in some future update?

cheere Paul

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your question.
Unfortunately, PreenFM is not aware of any Midiclock so it's not possible to synchronized anything to it.

That would be very interesting. Maybe in a future update...
At some point i'd love to add an arpegiator too and Midi clock will be required.

Hi Paul,

Midi Clock is definitely something i have to add.

I'll ship the Kit tomorrow.

hi, would it be a big thing to implement a midi-thru mode, in which midi clock and sequencer start/stop would be forwarded?
would be great if the unit could do this in "forward other chanels" mode. (so it would be a full midi thru)

otherwise one has to put the PreenFM at the end of the midi chain, if the other devices in that chain need clock.

everything else is fine now in firmware 1.51 i guess.

cheers Paul

Thanks Paul for the good idea,
That shouldn't be complicated to add.

Will be in 1.52.  :D

Firmware 1.52.B1 has a full midi-thru instead of the old "forward other channels".
I  think it's how it should have always been.
Let me know if it works as you expected.

And thanks for the suggestion   ;)

Firmware 1.52.B2 has a first midi clock implementation.
MC/4, MC/2, MC, MC*2 available in the step sequencer BPM choices after 240.

Let me know all your remarks

The "future" is here and now  :D
PreenFM last official firmware allows MdidiClock synchronization of your LFO and Step sequencer.... (And a gate effect in Bonus)
