Tour Map

In the course of time I have accumulated a number of places visited around the world. This website is primarily there to document these places for myself and to help a little with the memory. Mainly photos will be found here, but since 2018 also videos. In addition there are some travelogues, which were unfortunately never really finished, but will be completed in the future. The website starts with a tour to Florida in 2009. Through official visits I visited far more places than are shown on the map and were marked. However, I at least marked the most important places. For some there are no travel reports, photos or videos because the length of stay was simply too short or I had no desire to document something. The following places or regions were visited by me and have some content on this site:

Korg Minilogue XD Midi Clock Problems

I had some issues with my synthesizers chain, especially with the MPC one with external synchronisation to the PC. Somehow it worked some times and sometimes not. I found now out after hours checking, that the Minilogue XD always sends Midi Clock data, via MIDI and USB. Does not matter. This confuses the whole chain and leads to crazy artefacts when using MPC external midi clock synchronisation. Korg indeed included no option to turn the midi clock sending off. There is also another issue. When the XD arpeggio is running by external clock and that clock turns off. It will run on the speed of the internal clock further, because the clock has only an automatic internal external switch. This thing is also not usable live via MPC only. I will try this a little more but I think I have to sell this piece unfortunately.

| Status[H] | Description |
| F8 | Timing Clock |
| FA | Start |
| FC | Stop |
| FE | Active Sensing |

This message is transmitted when the “En Rx Transport” is set to “On”.

The midi implementation says that En RX Transport can turn the messages off, but it does not. I think my old 90s MOTU Timepiece can mute system realtime messages….

It is indeed possible to Filter the Midi Clock with a Motu Timepiece II. There has to be only the muting for real time turned on at the XD input channel of the Timepiece. This is really great for a 30 years old hardware.
