midi Synch slave /master. why so hard

Why is it so hard to get cubase to synch to midi clock internal or external .I’ve been banging my head against the wall over this can even get close
trying to synch Cubase to Bitwig slave or master . OS X over IAS . somebody must have done it . please share your experience .

thank you :unamused:

From Cubase send MIDI clock to the desired MIDI port, configure the slave to receive on the correct port - done. What exactly is the problem?

I tried every possible variation few days .didn’t work . and then all of a sudden it started working . didn’t dive in deep to figure out what but it does work now . it sees that something was blocking it
