When the tr8 and tb3 sequencers were not starting or playing I had to enable the midi thru back on. Then I went to clock works and muted the beat clock there on the aira units and just like t...

Re: Help syncing A Motu midiexpress XT to live

sounds good thanks for all the help. I went to my local guitar center and sam ash at both place told me they didnt know that units like the midi express existed or they had no idea where to begin since they have never seen one in person.

Re: Help syncing A Motu midiexpress XT to live

tried them all and I get the same results except the direct patch but it only allows midi port 1 to send midi info to ableton. I am going to try what fragmentated mention. Maybe I have ableton set up incorrectly. Not exactly sure what's going on but erratic BPM sounds like midi clocks are getting sp...

All the roland stuff says MIDI clock source If MIDI clock is being input to the MIDI IN connector or the USB port, the TR-8’s tempo will automatically synchronize to MIDI clock (default). * If MIDI clock is being simultaneously input from the MIDI IN connector and from the USB port, the USB port tak...

Re: Help syncing A Motu midiexpress XT to live

thanks I will give it ago when I get home. I just want a basic setup for now. I want to send and receive notes to ableton from all my gear and sync the bpm using ableton. I also wanted to try a second setup where if I wanted to jam without my laptop I just wanted to sync everything to the TR-8.
