Ah, but we're not done yet! (Well, I'm not...)

You didn't mention the computer before... so get very specific here and tell us what is driving what. Where are the notes coming from? You might not need the Innerclock. The solution may be sitting in front of you.

OK so, just for future reference:

THE MIAMI DOESN'T SEND MIDI SYNC?!!?!

SRSLY? wtf?

Seriously, STG, it's 3 AM on Sunday. What's with the e^2 shift we're pulling here? :lol:

I'd add that given this there is no way I'll be buying the Miami now. I've been falling in love my Machinedrum lately and this just confirms it... run that baby through some filters and compression and go with it.

well my computer is the midi clock (sorry forgot to get detailed my bad) and that goes into the 552 then i get whatever sequence i want to make and then i was going to send midi to the 553

so the computer makes the midi clock and the sequencer is driven by the midi clock and then i have the notes from the 553

get the innerclock sync lock if you're using a computer.
I got the sync shift and it's the best thing since SSM2044 and peanutbutter.

eh how about a midi splitter box first?

what is your MIDI interface?

you're already using the computer for sync .. just get the signal to both the moonunit and the miami at the same time.

you don't need a din sync master for the miami. just set SYNC:MIDI.

Alright, sounds to me like you're doing just fine with the gear you have. I agree with STG that you need a MIDI splitter. In a previous post I recommended the Quadra Thru but there are several options out there.

So your setup would look like this:

Computer Midi Interface -> Thru box
|
-> Miami in slave mode
|
-> m553 -> 1/16 out to trigger sequencer

I wish we could do fixed width fonts... that would make the diagram clearer. To be clear there are three connections to the thru box: one coming from the computer and two outputs (one to the Miami and one to the modular).
