Syncing a Drumbrute Impact with Cubase 11 Pro

Long time Cubase user, but new to the world of Midi Syncing,
I’m trying to get my Arturia Drumbrute Impact to be Midi clock slave to Cubase 11 pro, But can’t get it to sync!
I’ve tried everything, combed through all my settings, and can’t see any reason why the drum machine won’t start when I hit play on cubase,
can anyone help?


How is your setup in the Studio > Project Synchonization Setup > Destinations, please?

Did you enable Always Send Start Message, please? Actually I would recommend to enable all 3 options there.

yeah I had all of these enabled, and tried with them diabled aswell, no joy!

seems to have decided to work today!
thanks for the help!
