Finally got around to getting my Commodore 64 running Pro 16 (Card 32) up and running and trying to transfer files to PC based Sequencer. Recognise file formats can not be read, so intend to play files and record into new package.
Have downloaded copy of cubase essentials and can get it to recognise midi input, but can not find a way to synchronise recording, to start and stop automatically. Looking at cubase essentials manual it appears it can not be controlled from an external Midi clock (my first thought) and I have tried setting the Pro16 to be clocked from cubase and believe I have set up the correct settings in transport synchronisation (including send start command) but no luck.
My primary objective is to transfer these files onto a modern platform, as children and other commitments stop me from doing much new in way of music.
Any ideas or do i need a different package. Have to say i love the ease of use of the Pro 16 and wish there was a version for PC (supporting MIDI Files) and remember now why i never upgraded when I first got a PC.
