I want to be able to syncronize Cubase to the Alesis hd24 harddisc recorder.
I can control Cubases start and stop via midi from the hd24 but I cannot start, stop og set record from Cubase to control the hd24.
I know that the hd24 has to be master and cubase the slave.
In Cubases project syncronization setup I’ve selected the following:
- Midi timecode,
- all midi inputs
- Midi channel 1 on in midi timecode destination
- Midi channel 1 in Midi clock destination
- Midi clock follows project position
- Always send start message
- Send midi clock in stop mode.
and I’ve activated the external sync in the transport bar.
In the studio setup I have created the Generec remote and set the input to all midi inputs and checked the learn, but nothing is learned from the hd 24. I can see on my external midi interface that there’re activity on midi channel 1 when pressing play or stop from the hd24 but no mmc’s are recorded.
10 years ago when I had an early cubase I had no problem controlling the hd24 from Cubase via the same midi setup so it should still be possible, but how?
