hey to anyone i haven't talked to for a while Razz (HEY TOM)

i've been working on some acid patterns on my micro, but of course it takes a second to switch patches so you have to turn the volume down, switch patterns, and then on top of that deal with the pattern not being in sync with the sequencer driving it

i'm basically using a custom tracker with individual tracks, think LSDj or ableton with 8 tracks of midi.... all 16 step patterns driving an external sampler and the micro.

what are some ways that i could resync the patch with the sequencer? the easiest i thought would be to put a switch on the clock line, and at the beginning of an empty pattern i'll have a CC to turn it on... quick fix, i've got extra tracks, and it would allow me to drop the micro sequence in and out with one pattern starting it, another stopping.

and to be nice i'll share my base patch Smile

tried it out with the CC to turn clock on and off... works great as long as i the patterns on the micro and the sequencer are the same length!

Classical problem, fortunately with a simple solution.

The trick is to make the micro's sequencer wait untill it receives it's first sync pulse and only then start running. Build a simple memory cell by feeding a OR gate back on itself, the other input gets fed the midi sync pulse. This'll go "1" after the first sync pulse and it'll stay there untill the end of the world or you load another patch (whichever comes first). Put a AND gate over both the midi clock and your new memory cell and patch this into the sequencer's clock in, the MIDI sync one can go to the normal reset input of the sequencer.

That's .5% cpu time and two zero page adresses for the most important bit of Ableton Live.... Not a bad deal.

There are a lot of spontanious and semi-spontanious jam sessions. Sometimes these turn out to be the best performances. Be sure to bring a little gear along. It'll be safe there.
