I’m considering an MC8. I appreciate the thought that has gone into the UI and it looks like a great piece of gear.
With regards to possible MIDI Clock issues mentioned in this thread, I’d be really grateful if anyone can advise me if these use-cases are realistic. Or, if I’m asking for a buyers-remorse headache?
Occasionally I’d like to send it MIDI clock, PC and CC messages from my (Windows 10, Linux) PC via USB or MIDI DIN to pass on to my pedal board. Depending on the PC, I’d be using either USB on the MC8 or MC8 MIDI DIN via a NI Komplete Audio 6 mk2, a umc404hd, or a M-Audio Delta PCI 2496.
I’d have an ML5 and/or possibly loop switchers from other manufacturers plugged in the MIDI DIN chain.
When not at the PC, I intend to use presets where I’d “tap-tempo” on the MC8 and send MIDI clock via MC8 DIN out to some Eventide 'factors (Timefactor, Pitchfactor and Modfactor) and sometimes then via DIN to a Moog MP201. Potentially with a thru box, if required.
Also, I’d like to make some presets where sometimes I work with the above pedals and also pass MIDI DIN clock to combinations of;
Behringer Neutron and Model D
Novation Bass Station
Arturia Mini Brute
Sometimes I’d like to pass MIDI Din clock to the MC8 from either a:
-Possibly some of the synths mentioned above.
Mostly for the purposes of time syncing the Eventide pedals or possibly my PC’s DAW to accompany my guitar or synth playing.
Planning to plug in expression pedal or two to send CC data at the same time.
I’m not sure if I’ve left out anything relevant?
Appreciate any replies.
