Hello Ardour forum.
I am trying to slave Ardour to an extenal MIDI clock source, Electribe 2. The E2 is continuously sending out MIDI clock messages, even when its playback is stopped. Routing the MIDI input from the E2 to Ardour MIDI Clock In, I can see the MIDI Clock messages via the MIDI Tracer. But when I enable the external positioning sync, the transport automatically starts running. And there is no way to control it via the Ardour interface. If I also route the MIDI input to MIDI Control In, then pausing the playback is possible after first starting the playback on the E2, followed by pausing/stopping it.
Is this thet expected behaviour? Isn’t it possible to simply have the BPM synced to the external source, while still controlling the transport internally (or at least not autostarting whenever a MIDI Clock message is received)?
