Thought I make a new topic to have some overview.
I bought a Roland TR-8S and connected it via MIDI with the X1800. Audio goes to ch3 of the mixer.
Now, if I play a 130bpm track on ch1 from an SC5000, Engine will send out the 130bpm of that track and the TR-8S will play the rhythm pattern at the same 130bpm.
However, if ch1 is faded out and I want to keep the TR-8S as the only “music” playing until a ch2 track is mixed in, speed will revert to 120bpm (default Engine Connect, I guess?).
My request would be to make it selectable in Utility which channel(s) of the mixer should dictate bpm to MIDI info and to remain that way until another track changes the Engine info. In my case only ch1 or ch2 should do this; by no means ch3.
@EthanLeo: Problem above is at this time only solvable manually with FX assign, I think? So I need to switch between ch1 and ch2 (wherever the track is played) to not have ch3 “send out” it’s bpm?
Edit: possible workaround: assign both ch1 and ch2 to a crossfader side and assign FX to that A or B.
Anyway, MIDI works fine (apart from airco noise in the background… https://we.tl/s-NQYOdmlIwk
