USAMO Clock Command Specs

Post by CamAdair » Tue Mar 24, 2020 12:47 pm

Does the USAMO receive and send Start, Stop, Continue, and Song Position Pointer messages?
Is it able to run from printed audio code and not only the plugin?
Will it run DIN Sync machines?
If I put a MIDI through splitter box after it would it cause any problems multiplying the clock?

It sends all MIDI messages.

>> Is it able to run from printed audio code and not only the plugin?

If you capture the plug-in output, you can replay that to the USAMO, but in practice that's unlikely to be convenient.

>> Will it run DIN Sync machines?

No.

>> If I put a MIDI through splitter box after it would it cause any problems multiplying the clock?

If it's a dumb splitter (just an electrical connection) it won't degrade the clock. Any MIDI patchbay/splitter that contains any processing may affect the timing.

Thanks,
A couple more questions:
Would it sync from ppqn clock and start/stop printed to tape?
Is getting it to sync DIN sync just a matter of connecting a different pin? Would a kenton MIDI to DIN box add latency?

Thanks again,
Ive looked at the SPDIF and ADAT euro solutions but want to stick to analog audio for now.
Is there a list of compatible "dumb" or discreet splitters/ thru boxes that don't add latency to the USAMO?
