just bought with magical tool, but i am not sure, if i can the thing i would like to do :-)
My purpose: Send the midiclock from cubasis to my iRigmidi2 interface without "Song Position Pointer" Messages. i guess filtering the messages i could do with the streambyter, but how can i filter the midiclock before the stream goes to iRigMidi?
Why? the iRig is connected to a korg volca sample, and i would like to sync cubasis with my korg volca. i figured out with the Song Position Pointer messages the volca starts not at the first step and everything is out of sync. it should be so easy, but i dont know how to get the two gears (ipad + volca)in sync ;-(
Stripping the SPP from a timecode stream using the Stream Byter is easy. The rule is:
F2 = XX +B
However, there is a problem in that Cubasis' MIDI clock feature is as follows (from Cubasis help, highlighting is mine):
"When MIDI clock is activated, the following signals are sent to all the connected MIDI devices and background apps"
What this means is that the clock signal will always be sent directly to the iRig by Cubasis and there is no way to get inbetween this stream to do the stripping.
Additionally, Cubasis will not slave to incoming clock, so we can't run a clock from anywhere else.
There is really only one solution to this (apart from Steinberg improving their MIDI implementation):
- Get a Line6 Midi Mobilizer I (not the current II version) off ebay or somewhere for a few bucks since no-one wants them. Cubasis cannot see this interface at all, but MidiBridge can and you can bridge it into CoreMIDI to control exactly what you send/receive to Cubasis including stripping the SPP from Cubasis' clock signal.
yo, i did a workaround test, if it would work with the streambyter:
- connected the iRig to my iphone und cubasis is on iPad: - connected both via wifi and routed midiclock from ipad to iphone - with streambyter on iphone i filtered the SSP and transformed Clock-Continue (FB) to Clock-Start (FA) so my "code" is: F2 = XX +B FB = FA
Yes, it works!!! Ok, midiclock via WiFi is really wanky, but now i know, this is the right way. So i will buy Line6 Midi Mobilizer and a "Lightning to 30-pin Adapter", hope, this works although!
