I recently stumbled upon a PuraData based step sequencer for my QuNeo MIDI controller, the so called Rythmboy:
I want to use it as a step sequencer to use with the remix decks in Traktor, so I can add drums to the tracks I play.
Unfortunately, the Rythmboy has an internal MIDI clock, so I can't sync it with an external clock. I already tried to replace the BPM rotary in the patch with "MIDIrealtimein" and the stuff that's also needed, but I can't get it to work.
I managed to do all the other stuff that is needed to work with Traktor (changing the note output, optically mirroring the rotaries, limiting the notes ranges etc.), so I tried, but I don't know how to work with an external midi clock. Another problem that may occur is that the Rhythmboy then needs two MIDI inputs, #1 is the QuNeo and #2 is the external clock (Traktor or my Xone4D mixer).
This is the part of the Rhythmboy that controls the MIDI clock:
The blue box is a tap button to tap in the tempo. This is not needed.
The red box converts a rotary MIDI input between 0 and 127 into a BPM value between 60 and 240 bpm and gives out that value. This is where the changes need to happen I think. I need something that changes the MIDI clock in into a numerical BPM value.
The green box gives output to the rotary LEDs to show the current BPM. This is also not needed.
The other stuff lets a LED blink a metronome, I think.
So, would one of you please tell me what to put in instead of the red box, to make the magic happen?
