MIDI Start/Stop Input

+2 votes
hello everybody,

I know there is a prototype to send out MIDI start/stop messages to an external device.

but what if I want to send that Start/Stop message from a MIDI device to Kyma? that would be very useful for me to receive that kind of message into a SoundToGlobalController.

is that possible?

can anybody help me with this?

From your external sequencer you can send a simple switched on and off with a #CC and multiply it by your !BPM in Kyma.

this is not exactly what I was looking for...
ok. I know it is a workaround. I use it for sending start/stop from a external software sequencer to kyma and it works very well.
I would love to have the possibility to send the start/stop MIDI message. It would help the flow with an external sequencer.

Hi Domenico.

If you can establish an OSC connection to your Pacarana using KymaConnect or a direct cable, you could use OSCulator    to route all your midi messages.

thanks Cristian, I will try with this,
I always hope a MIDI Start/Stop from MIDI In will come soon.
I'm running into the same thing Domenico. Have you found a way?

I know some of my external sequencers are sending MIDI clock all the time, regardless of whether it is running or not.  

You could try a CapyTalk switch. There's many ways to do this in Kyma but here is one approach that extracts the !BPM from the MIDI Clock :

(!Osc_clockStart setReset: !Osc_clockStop)
(!TimingClock durationBetweenTriggers: 24) s bpm removeUnits
