Clocking from my interface and controlling VST'S in reaper?

hi everyone thanks for your help so far :slight_smile: I have 2 questions about midi how do I set up sonic pi to receive midi clock from my midi interface?

and how do I set up sonic pi to control VST’s in reaper? I’m running Mac os10. your help with these questions would be most welcome :slight_smile:

Hi @soundwarrior,

apologies - Sonic Pi doesn’t yet have a decent way of consuming and syncing with an incoming MIDI clock. It is capable of generating one with the fns midi_clock_tick and midi_clock_beat .

One thing you can do is to sync on an incoming MIDI message (any kind, such as “note on”) and use that to start a live loop on receipt of a message from your DAW - after which the DAW and Sonic Pi should be in time with each other (assuming the BPM isn’t changed on either side).
