In my live setup I use a KMI 12 step for my midi controller and bs-16i on the iPad for sounds. I want to use the KMI to start a sequence using the iOs Genome Midi Sequencer. I am guessing that some how I can do this with Stream Byter but have not been able to come up with anything.
I was thinking sending a note on (say D2) via channel 14 to start the sequence and then a note off for D2 to stop the sequence from playing. Is this something that can be easily done via a couple of rules?
I will check this tomorrow for you with Genome, but if it is happy to honour the MIDI start/stop messages then the technique described in this thread may work for this too.
# note D2 on/off = start/stop 9D 32 01-7F = FA # start 9D 32 00 = FC # stop 8D 32 = FC # stop
This technique does not work with Genome without also using the MidiBus app as genome will respond to the start button but won't advance the transport without an external clock also. This is what I did: (all apps already running)
- configure Stream Byter as above on the controller input port (on left) - connect above port to MidiBus (on right)
- set bpm to desired value
- touch settings cog - on MIDI, touch MIDI INPUTS and confirm MidiBus is highlighted and ticked - on SYNC touch the 'EXTERNAL CLOCK' button so it is highlighted
Holding down D2 on controller started play and stopped when I released the note.
