I’m trying to synchronize Cubase and Protools, using Protools as a video slave for my projects. I’ve spent hours trying it set it up but so far have no luck. Would really appreciate it if someone can give me some help on what to do.
I am trying to use ipMIDI as a virtual MIDI port connection (via ethernet cable): www.nerds.de/en/ipmidi.html
First, I did this to Cubase:
Project Synchronization Setup
-Machine Control Output Destination
+MC Master Active (checked)
+MMC Input: ipMIDI Port 1
+MMC Output: ipMIDI Port 1
+MMC Device ID: 126
+Number of Audio Tracks: 2
-MIDI Timecode Destinations
+ipMIDI Port 1 (checked)
And I did this to Protools:
+MTC Reader Port: ipMIDI, Port 1
-MIDI Machine Control Remote (Slave)
After that, I turned on external sync in Cubase, and the clock button in Protools (and it’s blinking). And I started playing in Cubase, but nothing happened. Does anyone know what I should’ve done differently? Thanks in advance.
