As a keyboard player, I perform overseas with a wide range of equipment and numerous plugins driven by a Tyros 4 MIDI clock, Kronos 88-X, Kurzweil PC3K8, as well as a garden variety of sequencers and rhythm units. I’ve used Pro Tools for years, as well as Ableton Live, MainStage, and Logic Pro-X. It really wasn’t until I started using Gig Performer that I got hooked on the functionality; reminding me of my old Arp2600 in terms of quick cabling. I guess I’m spoiled now, due to its ease of setup and flexibility. However, without a way to slave Gig Performer to an external MIDI clock, I lose all of the functionality to drive sequencing, and syncing to plugins such as Superior Drummer and a host of other unique MIDI clock synced plugins (within Gig Performer). The Tyros 4 as well as many other keyboards, transmits MIDI Clock and Start/Stop data at a rate of 24 PPQN (pulses per quarter note). Of course when slaved, it would need to respond to demo changes from the Master. Somewhat similar to Ableton Live or Logic Pro-X. I believe Digital Performer also has this option.
is this functionality something that might be entertained sometime down the “Yellow Brick” road? It’s hard to imagine that someone else hasn’t requested this feature…
