Been loving the Hapax for the last few months. I am curious to see whether I can use my new UltraLite MK5 with DC coupled outputs interface to sync Hapax to the DAW with a more reliable sync than MIDI. I currently have an ERM Multiclock but my desk real estate is sparse these days and I’m using it solely to sync the Hapax to my DAW so I’m wondering if I can forego it entirely by using CV Tools in Ableton.
I’m currently trying it with a Hosa 1/4 → 1/8 TS cable but am unable to get the Hapax to start. I just ordered some of the Expert Sleepers FR-200 1/4" TRS to 3.5mm TS Floating Ring cables to see if that helps, but I feel like I’m missing something obvious. I have my audio interface output connected to CV In 1 and I have Clock Source set to CV In 1. I’ve tried various other parameters for the different sync in settings but no luck so far.
Am I on the right path with these cables? Is this even a worthwhile venture or am I going to have the same unstable clocking issues that the Multiclock solves? Thanks for any help anyone can provide!
