Syncing BM3 record with external hardware (Digitakt)
I’m using BM3 with Digitakt. Managed to sync them si Digitakt sends midi clock to BM3. I can control play/stop, set tempo and sequence from the digitakt. But I can’t seem to sync record on the BM3.
Basically I need to tigger record on BM3 in time with the Digitakt. So I can press play on the digitakt and record on BM3, be it digitakt audio, or any synth in BM3. I hope I’m making my case clear... in short I need to trigger “rec” from external hardware. Seems to me like an obvious need so I guess I must be missing something...
I tried the other way around, syncing BM3 clock out into Digitakt. I found this to be more unreliable. It seems to sometimes set the tempo at double. So if tempo is 90 in BM3 digitakt receives 180bpm... having both clock in/out between BM3 and digitakt, which would in theory give me the best of both is a bomb, it goes crazy, probably a midi loop (makes sense this is to avoid).
