Hi all,

Apologies if I missed it somewhere in preferences, but can Bitwig do MIDI sync for external devices? Not seeing it so far...


Go to preferences / controllers, you can add a MIDI clock transmitter there.

I tried it with an external midi sequencer, and the MIDI clock did drift quite a lot.. not sure if this is to do with Bitwig or something else, but I did not have the problem in Ableton..

Yeah I have a bad drift as well in Linux..compared to the SEQ24 software which runs very well.

I have had success with Roland AIRA TB-3 external midi sync for usage of the TB-3's sequencer without any drift. Perhaps your drift is being caused by interface latency?

Same here on Linux with jack and alsa midi bridge, unusable drift unless one likes rotating sequences. Note triggering however is fine.
