I have the BB and infinity looper , everything it’s fine but I wish to have also my DAW (cubase) synchronized as a slave with BB to be able to record loops on my DAW as i do on the looper.
I’m new to midi and I’m wondering if someone can help me to do that.
My problem is that if I connect the BB in the MIDI IN of my Focusrite and the Focusrite MIDI OUT to the looper then I loose the synchronisation between the BB and the looper, which instead I have connecting the BB midi out straight to the infinity, and also I don’t know how to synchronise cubase to the BB.
Basically what I wish to do is:
looper and cubase
Does it make sense?
Can someone help me to do that?
Thank You ghostofweedon but I’ve read that and I’m already using Focusrite Control and there’s not any mention about midi there.
When I plug BB , MIDI is shown on the soundcard, I can see USB MIDI in cubase but I don’t know how to synchronise with BB and also the looper connected Focusrite is not synchronized from the BB.
I also done a reboot of the Focusrite as suggested somewhere else.
I don’t know if I have to configure cubase or what
I was in the same situation months ago and here’s how I set up mine. Hope this helps!
REAPER - DAW I use and set up as MIDI master, it controls tempo on both BB and VL3 (looper)
BB - set up as MIDI slave, tempo/clock is controlled by DAW, MIDI Out setting is set to MIDI THRU
VL3 - set up as MIDI slave, tempo/clock is controlled by DAW
ZOOM U-44 Audio Card
U-44 MIDI Out --> BB MIDI In
BB MIDI Out --> VL3 MIDI In
For what I found in the Cubase manual is not possible to set cubase as a slave to midi tempo,
btw I’m not able even to configure cubase as a master and BB slave
I will try with Reaper with your setup,thank you
Hi think It’s possible to do the same in cubase but unfortunately I’m not good to find a way
My purpose it’s just to make my daw to record while I start BB as the looper do
BB as a Slave, I can start or stop recording when I press record on Reaper
BB as Master, I can see a led starting to blink as soon I start the BB and I’m able to record a midi track from BB but not play or stop in any device.
Can I ask you your Reaper settings ?
I wish to record when my BB verse or intro start
There are some synchronisation settings SPP,MTC ecc but I don’t know which one is the right one
I’m definitely going nut
Now I find a possible way to do it , BB as a master in Reaper.
In menu ACTIONS apparently I can assign a midi note or command to every single action in Reaper which it’s great but I’m not able to assign a midi CC , the box it’s gray, I tried to put a midi note to Record and it is working but of course only when Reaper read that note.
How I can let Reaper understand CC commands coming from BB?
Thank You very much ,your help it’s much appreciated.
After a big fight with almost every DAW around I finally found the free Cakewalk by band lab can be slave of the midi clock and when I press RECORD Cakewalk wait while BB is in intro and it start recording when the verse start and close the recording when BB stop.
