    I am doing a show I need to sync a lighting controller that uses the MIDI Clock signal for it time base. I am wondering if I send a Note on command via pangolin is the clock signal tranmitted. I would like to be able to send just one note at the biginning of the show and the lighting would get a clock signal to sync to.

    Hi Larry,

    I am sorry, but I don't really know what you mean by MIDI clock signal. I know what MIDI Time code is, and we support this for input but not for output.

    In general, Showtime (and Autoplay) support Note On, Note Off, Control Change and Program Change messages for both input and output. But nothing that is really "clock" related...

    It may be possible to send the lighting console a Note On to trigger the start of a show, and this is possible and easy with Showtime. If you only want one message, I recommend making the effect "zero length" where the start and end time are the same.
