Midi Clock Sync On Multiple Hardware Synths, How?

We’re working several years in Renoise with our hardware and always linked all the hardware synths through MIDI THRU. We’ve had a Midisport4x4, but we could never use it since M-Audio didn’t released a Vista64 driver. But after a while we really wanted to use a midi controller, because we wanted to get as much control of every knob on every synth as possible.

Now we got 3 Cakewalk’s UM-3G’s and they work prefect. All the synths got their own Midi I/O and now we can record every knob live from every synth. But now I’ve one problem I thought that a midi controller took the Midi Clock signal of Renoise for all midi outputs. I tried several setups and tried to find some solutions on the internet for this. I also looked for some kind of MIDI controller software, which can send 1 Midi Clock signal to multiple devices at the same time.

Does anyone have a solution for this? Without wiring everything through Midi Thru again?

No, he has to ask Renoise. In Renoise it is not possible to send midi clock to multiple midi outputs and that sucks.


btw: That’s a nice midibox, the UM3G, never saw it. I also have a midisport 4x4 without x64 drivers, maybe the um3g is a good substitute.

I hope Renoise will have this option very soon then. I really need it for all of my synths.

It’s great, especially because it’s faster then a normal MIDI Interface Device because of its special FPT. (For more information: http://www.cakewalk.com/Products/UAUM/FPT.asp)
You can also chain up to 3 of these devices for 9ins and 9 outs.

I would definately support this feature to send midi clock to multiple midi outputs.
As work around I could imagine that it is with MidiOx possible, but have not tried it.

get a MIDI patchbay. it’s not the most elegant solution but they’re cheap and very useful for working with multiple MIDI machines. I got my first, a Kawai MAV-8, in 2005 and I can’t imagine trying to route MIDI without one.
