Built my Christmas Anushri last week, kit is beautiful. All parts were present, packing great, arrived before Christmas and worked upon first powerup! Sound == awesome. Thanks Olivier and Frank.
I was happy to notice a clock in jack, and the note in the manual about LFO sync locking-in implied that there was some software PLL action happening in there. I’ve been secretly hoping for a device that can up-rate my 4ppqn clock out from my old CR-68 or DR-55 (which have no clock input) to drive a midi system at 24ppqn. In other words, a gate-to-MIDI clock convertor with clock multiplication, so I can use the CR-68 as master of everything. I’ve modded my DR-55 to accept clock in, but don’t really want to mess up my CR-68.
I see the clock resolution part of the manual, and can press hold+drums to drive an external midi sequencer (my trusty poly800II) at various PPQN rates, divided down from the Anushri master clock. Great! I can similarly drive the Anushri from an external device (a monotron sync out), with the tempo knob full CCW, to get the Anushri to follow the monotron, and interpret the monotron clock variously as 4,16,24ppqn. Perfect.
Now the request – if I try to use the Anushri as a pure sync device, trying to drive the poly800II sequencer from the Monotron, the monotron rate seems to be passed from input (clock in) to MIDI clocks directly without the upconversion setting implied by the anushri ppqn control. So the say, 4ppqn coming out of monotron makes the poly800 midi client, who naturally expects 24ppqn, go verrry slooowly. Changing the PPQN setting of Anushri has no effect. Is that the intended operation? I would kind of hope that if I have anushri set to external tempo, then the anushri PPQN setting would control BOTH the anushri clock rate (it does now) AND the midi ticks (it doesn’t now, if I’ve understood correctly). It seems to upsame for internal use, but doesn’t pass that to MIDI.
Is this the correct interpretation of the behaviour? If so, I’d like to request that the MIDI out tick rate be post-upsampling, e.g. 6x if 4ppqn rate selected, in other words, MIDI sequencers downstream should get the benefit of the rate multiplication that Anushri does internally, when anushri ext. clock is active.
Warm regards to all,
