Having trouble syncing to an external midi clock. I’m able to do so with Loom, but not Awake. Anyone able to do so?

See this post:

Yes, this makes sense…I’m new to programming in Maiden…can you give me a sense of what I would change line 80 to?

in my case, the midi device I want to get clock from is #3 (listed in SYSTEM>DEVICES>MIDI) so… line 80 would be local clk_midi = midi.connect(3)


Sync now works. Thanks!

Im having trouble getting awake to sync to external clock on midi port 1, clock sync works on other sketches…
I have tried
local clk_midi = midi.connect(1)
to no avail
local clk_midi = midi.connect() which is the default does not sync either.

by default midi.connect() connects to port 1. is your midi device set to the first port in SYSTEM > DEVICES > MIDI?

Hi tehn, thanks for the reply.
Yes its on the first port in SYSTEM > DEVICES > MIDI
Its receiving midi clock from ableton, this same configuration works on other sketches, using external sync now with fourplay and its working with external sync.

ok, i’ll have to check it out. figured since both foulplay and awake use the beatclock library it should just work, but it’s been some time since i tested it. sorry for the trouble!

Thanks a lot tehn, much appreciated!
What a great device norns is! Congrats

this was broken in foulplay for a while as well, @okyeron pushed a fix on Apr 26th.

I don’t know if it will help, but here is the commit/fix


Looks like there might be a conflict with the midi.event for the midi_out_device (line 151) when there’s only one device for both incoming and outgoing midi (maybe it’s blocking the event from the one on line 81)

If I comment out line 151 - clock in works OK.

That fixed it, cheers!

just updated with param for crow clock output.

OUTPUT 1 on crow sends a 0.5ms pulse at 5v if the param is on.

here’s the diff, if you want to see how easy the code change was:


Had an idea that I think would be fantastic.
Would it be possible to add the morph sequence and randomise functions to be controlled with gates on crows inputs?
Then we could have endless synchronised sequence evolutions.


Love being able to sync awake via crow. Here’s awake crow JF ii, marbles/rings and w/. Thanks for adding the clock output @tehn!


I’m sure someone’s already done this, but since it was a good learning exercise, I’ve just created a copy of awake using the Karplus rings engine. Sounds lovely :slight_smile: Can, of course, share if anyone else wants a copy.


I’d be game for a share of this!
