This is similar to a previously-asked question, but different enough that I feel it warrants its own thread.
I need to sync Hermod and Pamelas New Workout (PNW). I don’t really care which is the master and which is the slave, but I have one requirement: either Hermod or PNW have to output 24 PPQN, because I have a third module that requires 24 PPQN to run.
Hermod doesn’t seem to be able to output 24 PPQN. However, PNW can effectively output 24 PPQN by setting one of the outputs to x24. However, PNW can only output a reliable 24 PPQN, when clocked externally, if the input clock is at least 24 PPQN. Which means that I can’t set Hermod be the master. So, PNW has to be the master.
My problem is that if I set Hermod Clock Source = CV A and CV Transport = CV Play B, and then connect a clock from PNW to CV A, and a run signal from PNW to CV B, Hermod doesn’t start correctly most of the time. If I have Hermod output a gate on beat one of measure one and connect my scope, The first gate from Hermod often lags behind the first gate from PNW. Every once in a while it lines up, but it’s incredibly inconsistent. It’s not usable.
If I only set Hermod Clock Source = CV A and connect a clock from PNW to CV A, without setting CV Transport, Hermod syncs just fine… but it doesn’t stop when I stop PNW. So, it’s partially working. Just not reliably, in a way I can really use long-term.
Can anyone tell me how I can connect PNW and Hermod to solve this problem?
PS. @squarpadmin is it possible for Hermod to send/receive 24 PPQN? It’s really needed for high-resolution syncing, and many modules implement it already!
