also happend to me
I bought the beat step to try to integrate in my modular set up (no laptop), but i find that the only way that i can clock all my system is (and this is the only way) using the beatstep as master clock.
the funny thing that i found is when i switch between pattern timming toggle, the beat step stop the clock and start again, i guess this is the reason of the issue...
so the issue is even more problematic, bcs the only way to use the beat step synced with a modular system is use the beatstep clock. As a midi in is not implemented or clock cv in (maybe the uart port used for midi out purpose can be set it as a PIO input in the chipset) there no way to use this device.
i can imagine that this device is cheap, thx for that... but if you want to get the community respect, this is not the way. this is my first arturia HW product.... and i not sure i will buy again any other controller product... pls don't become the new waldrof.
avoiding the wishlist thread that you should pay attention, is really disappointing not able to just use the only way to sync the beatstep.
