### Syncing multiple MIDI Devices and Live MIDI Drum Looping

• Email
• Follow


I have been considering a number of different setups for a one-man-band act
and I wanted to explore an option of using Roland Handsonic 10, which seemed
interesting to me because of its excellent interface/pads --it is most
instrument-like of all compact triggers I have seen --, and because of its
excellent sound pallete, and using BOSS RC-50 for guitar/bass looping.

What I don't know is what device would be a suitable sequencer (one that
would allow uninterrupted, "on the fly", construction of loops), and how
this sequencer could be setup to be able to record and trigger sequences
from Handsonic while at the same behaving as a master MIDI clock for Boss
RC-50.

One option that was suggested to me in one of the earlier postings was to
use an inexpensive sequencer such as Alesis SR-16, but I am not sure what
kind of MIDI interface would one use to connect Alesis to Handsonic 10 and
record and play data from Handsonic, while having Alesis SR-16 connected to
Boss RC-50, where Alesis SR-16 would provide master MIDI clock information.

In other words, I need to interconnect three MIDI devices and use them for
the following functions while having them all synced

1)     Handsonic 10 (MIDI triggering � MIDI OUT � Alesis SR-16 records
sequence

2)     Handsonic 10 (Sound generator) � MIDI IN � Alesis SR -16 plays
recorded sequence back and HAndsonic generates sound

3)     Alesis SR-16 �  MIDI Master clock info � Boss RC-50

Alesis SR-16 sends master MIDI Clock information.

Could anyone recommend a MIDI interface that would be suitable for such
setup?

I would appreciate recommendations on suitable sequencers for live,
uninterrupted, MIDI drum looping, where one can easily shift from recording
to playing mode, without stopping performance.

Thanks,

Rale

The obvious answer to me is a laptop computer running Ableton Live which
is the only sequencer I know of capable of dealing with loops on the
fly.

Incidentally, the Alesis SR-16 is a drum machine, not a full blown
sequencer, and as far as I'm aware is incapable of recording incoming
MIDI data.

It's certainly not capable of recording loops on the fly as you have to
deal with the song position pointer stuff manually, although it is
possible to record short patterns in that way.

Having said that, I'm not in possession of a complete MIDI
implementation chart for it - Alesis seem to be incredibly bad at
providing decent MIDI documentation for their modules!

Hope this helps :)

Long story short, possibly the half-rack MOTU MicroLite. Its cheap, runs Mac or PC and carries up to 80 MIDI channels. 5 ins, 5 outs. > I would appreciate recommendations on suitable sequencers for live, > uninterrupted, MIDI drum looping, where one can easily shift from recording > to playing mode, without stopping performance. The conventional wisdom these days is leaning towards Ableton Live, but Tracktion is also good and far cheaper. Reason would be good, but its locked into its own internal synths. You're looking at a ton of MIDI spaghetti and a laptop to do that live, so consider an effects box with a long delay/sample memory, including more guitar-focused items like Boomerang. It depends on your playing style and exactly how you want to use the recording aspect. Maybe a looper with 2 or 3 minutes in it would make a difference in how you structure things. -- HellPope Huey The motion-capture-suit man for the next Hulk movie "I was at a church in Chicago; they had 6 Commandments and 4 Do-The-Best-You-Cans." ~ George Wallace It is sobering to consider that when Mozart was my age he had already been dead for a year. ~ Tom Lehrer http://www.beat-factory.net/hellpope/   0 Reply HellPope 2/9/2006 5:01:30 PM 2 Replies 341 Views Similar Articles 12/6/2013 12:38:16 AM [PageSpeed]  Reply: Similar Artilces: multiple filtering <files> <file id="1" type="txt"> <indicies index="A"> <keyword>key1</keyword> </indices> <indicies index="B"> <keyword>key2</keyword> </indices> <indicies index="A"> <keyword>key3</keyword> </indices> </file> <file id="2"type="doc"> <indicies index="A"> <keyword>key1</keyword> </indices> <ind Multiple labels I'm trying to make a songbook with a list of authors. By each author there should be a short description and a reference to the songs, he has written (see below for an example). I'm having problems making this automatically. I can make an ordinary index using makeindex, but then I can't fit the descriptions by the author, can it be done in some way? Or is there perhaps a way to have multiple defined labels, and then only one \ref printing a list of the occurrences?

What I want to do is to be able to update these 4 tables at the same time lets say when I had a track and thus being able or to choose from the already in the tables function and people or add new one, and keep my relation upto date. It seems that access doesn't allow me to update more thant to tables at the time so i made two forms, but I'd like Multiple @LocalBindings I have a stateless EJB (3.0) that needs to handle 10 LocalBindings as in: @LocalBinding(jndiBinding = "Handler-0") @LocalBinding(jndiBinding = "Handler-1") .... @LocalBinding(jndiBinding = "Handler-9") Is this legal? Can this be done, and if so, would what i have above be the correct syntax?

Multiple looping
Hello, I am trying to send 2^19 data to USB2.0. I am reading the file "all_sines" and loading it into an array called "string1". Then, in a for loop I copied it into the USB data array "Data_outBuffer". The USB can carry only "32767" bytes at one time. The way I am doing right now requires 16 for loops to send the 2^19 amount of data. ( 32767 * 16 = 2^19). How can i solve this problem by using two loops. Is it possible? Please advice! I am looking for optimize code solution. The code is attached below Thanks Regards, John #define COUNT_VAR 32767 in

Multiple variable inialization
Hi there. I was wondering why the following two constructions dont work as expected: 1.) bool a, b, c, d = false; 2.) bool a, b, c, d; a, b, c, d = false; But the following works. bool a, b, c, d; a = b = c = d = false; TIA Swartz wrote: > Hi there. > > I was wondering why the following two constructions dont work as > expected: That depends on what you expect.

Multiple lines of comment with \underbrace
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 Greetings all, I am curious if there is a way to have multiple lines of comments using the subscript feature of the \underbrace command. For instance, I have something like $$a = \underbrace{b}_{\mbox{a really long comment about the possible significance of the second term on the right hand side of this equation}} + c$$ Is there a way to break up the text in the subscript for the \underbrace command into mutliple lines? I am looking for something like ~ b { underbrace } a really long comment about the possible significance of the second term on the right hand side of this equation Thanks, Jeff - -- Add an underscore between 'd' and 's' and remove the first three letters of the alphabet for email. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.2.4 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Thunderbird - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iD8DBQFBPktQlRbyBxB9qBwRAiX6AKCReINOJL8Z9ozIRA95t13kp7G9lQCffbVG 58RVD3tyyrb/BPFgBWDRllo= =IaN5 -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- Jeff Krimmel wrote: > > I am curious if there is a way to have multiple lines of comments using >
