Roland SBX-1 and "Sync Button" not working with
« on: November 17, 2017, 11:36:16 am »
Hi all.
I do have a Roland SBX-1 which I use as my main/master clock. This has a cool feature/button which is called "Sync". What it does is as follows:

"Press the [SYNC] button if synchronization has been lost.
Synchronized playback will stop while you hold down the button, and will resume
on the next beat when you release it."

This does not work with the BSP with the latest 2.x firmware: it simply doesn't act, it just goes on.
Anybody has this issue as well?
Any solution to this?

One other thing: when I stop SBX-1 and press start again, the BSP doesn't start from step 1, but just "continues" where it left.
Is this behavior correct?
Can it be changed?

Thanks and regards,
Flavio.

Hi FlavioB,
You do not say what sync you use (MIDI, clock DIN).

Yannick.

Hi.
I'm feeding MIDI sync into my SBX-1 and I'm working with MIDI out from SBX-1 into my MIDITEMP MP88, from that one forwarded to BeatStep Pro and all my other gear (MIDI).

Did you try connecting the BSP directly to your SBX-1?

If the SBX-1 sends a "MIDI real time Continue" message, this is normal.

Yes I did - and with BSP directly connected to SBX-1, it works!

Can you suggest some "sniffer software" to capture MIDI on that port and analyse it?
Thanks,
Flavio.

If you are on PC, MidiOx will do the trick.

I'm on both Windows and Mac OS X, I'll give it a shot with MidiOx ;-)

Hi all,
Yes for MIDI-OX on Windows. You can try MIDI Monitor on Mac OS.

That means your MIDITEMP MP88 is filtering messages. I guess it is a "Song Position Pointer" message that is not echoed and I think it is understandable.
You should use a MIDI splitter.

Hi all!
Nevermind this issue - I re-cabled everything and I found out that I connected the incoming clock (master clock) wrong: it was connected to the MP88 and was sending constantly the clock to each device. Whereas now I connected it into the SBX-1 and all went well!

Thanks,
Flavio.
