I'm trying to control parameters in my DAW with PD. Especially, I'm interested in controlling the playback of a MIDI file. So, I'm looking to make the DAW a slave and PD master. I know that MIDI Beat Clock (MBC) is a good way to synchronize between DAW and PD. This is what I managed to pull out of the web:
MBC sends 24 messages per sec. The messages are "248". To start you need 250 message, 252 to stop.
Can I assume that if I change the rate of MBC - for example from 24 fps to 20 fps - the MIDI file will be read slower? It seems reasonable, but I have no experience here...
Does anyone know how to create the MBC in PD? I read somewhere in the forum that [midirealtimein] can do it. But I know very little about MIDI in PD.
I couldn't find any tutorials on MIDI, and the Help files do not cover all the objects.
Thanks for any input!
