Strange behavior while receiving clock from other App - Help troubleshooting
Though it was hard fought I ultimately succeeded in getting LoopyHD to follow Sync from SetList Maker. It required the use of Midibridge and if the tempo sent from SetList Maker varied a lot I'd have to stop/start loopy in order to re-quantize the loops to bar 1 (hope that makes sense).
After upgrading to 1.4.11 (and now 1.4.12) I get VERY erratic sync between the apps. Under some circumstances the metronome in loopy will be correct and in sync with the external clock but the loops will be nowhere near in sync. Other times I can't even get that far. It seems to have something to do with the App that is sending clock (in this case SetlistMaker) also receiving clock from Loopy when it starts to play. I'm not choosing to send midi clock from loopy but it seems to anyway. This didn't use to happen.
Unfortunately I upgraded Setlist Maker around the same time I upgraded loopy so I can't say if it that's not part of the problem.
In general, how best should I go about trouble shooting these sync environments? Can anyone recommend a free app that will send clock that will let me test this functionality? Will Audiobus address this? I'm struggling a lot with trying to systematically set up this environment and seem to end up resorting to just trying any/all combinations of settings hoping to stumble on a solution. I feel pretty foolish doing that especially since I've been a recording engineer for 25 years and feel pretty comfortable with MIDI and electronic music production.
Sorry to meander but I'm grasping at straws on this one....
