I’m diving into my Grids deeper as I get used to the “basics” after a while. I’m trying to sync my Deluge with it. On a 100 BPM MIDI clock output. I’m struggling to find the correct order to fire my Grids as I start to press play on my Deluge.
I discussed this with some people on FB and they state I need to do the following:
- Set the Grids to 24 PPQN and the reset knob on the reset function (not tap) without anything patched into the Grids
- Press the reset once so the Grids “knows” when a downbeat will start, or do I patch the clock first?
- Patch in an external clock (and reset signal = optional or mandatory?)
- Press start AFTER reset on the Deluge
It should be in Sync now. However I can send a so-called “trigger clock” as well. I can’t find what the difference is between this and MIDI clock. Will the Grids react better on trigger clock?
It seems to help to stay in tune if I create a reset signal on a gate out from the Deluge by sending 1 Midi note in a sequence, at the same first step (Kick) as an sequence I create to run an internal kit?
How many bars does a sequence need to be to cycle full through all the steps of my beloved Grids?
I know now the reset function seems pivotal to get this right.
Unfortunately i’m not at home to try out.
Can someone confirm this is the right way of setting this up?
