Hey there, I’m new to the world of MIDI and to the world of PureData. I have reached the point where I think it’s time to start chaining my things together with MIDI. Right now, I really just want to use MIDI to tempo-sync a few things. For instance, I’d like to dial in a tempo on the Organelle’s Arpeggio Synth patch, then have that information passed on to my drum machine (MIDI thru), my Pitchfactor (MIDI thru), and my Super Radical Delay (MIDI in only). Ideally I’d like to find a way to add my SP404 in there, but it’s also MIDI in only, so I can’t think of a way to patch that one in.
So would I just go into the patch I want to edit (here, Arp. Synth) and add a “midiout” from the Tempo selection, if I want to use the Organelle as a clock? And,(please forgive me if this question is naive or doesn’t make sense) would I need to specify a CC value (0-127) through which to port the clock information? I’ve read the Organelle manual, but having never really worked with editing MIDI, this is the best understanding I’ve got.
Bumping this thread. Would love to use Organelle as a master midi clock for some guitar pedals, etc. Any info on how to modify PD code (to add midi clock out) for the arpeggio patch would be appreciated.
The issue with this is that makes the Organelle a MIDI thru device. I believe the problem we’re having is using the Organelle as the master clock. There is no MIDI in involved in making the Organelle serve as a master clock.
i’m having trouble using my Organelle as a Masterclock out into my Echoplex digital pro. i have a usb that has a midi in and a midi out so kind of a Y cable. i have the usb going out of my organelle into the IN of the echoplex but its freaking my machine out. its an m-audio cable? any idea why its freaking the machine out? i redownloaded all of the latest updates but to no avail.
Have you tried swapping the midi in/out cables on the in/outs on the echoplex? When I used a cable of this sort for the first time I found the labels for in/out on the plugs were a bit counterintuitive.
Another thing could be the cable itself - might actually just be faulty. I’ve used cheapo ebay midi usb cables to connect organelle and volcas/pc/midi keyboard without issues. Have you tried the cable with any other equipment?
@chrisk for some reason the apreggio doesn’t lock when its connected. as for the polybeats it reacts strangely. there is always one sample playing and even an aux hit won’t bring it back to 0 voices. also i have an fcb1010 going into the gibson echoplex which is going into the organelle. some buttons of the fcb1010 play certain tones or notes on the organelle. any advice helping me sync would be much appreciated!
