MIDI Clock Destinations

Some MIDI devices like drum machines can match their tempo and location to incoming MIDI clock. Select any MIDI ports that you want to output MIDI clock.

MIDI Clock Follows Project Position

Activate this option to ensure that the MIDI clock device follows Cubase when looping, locating, or jumping while playing.


Some older MIDI devices might not respond well to these positioning messages and could take some time synchronizing to the new location.

Always Send Start Message

MIDI clock transport commands include Start, Stop, and Continue. However, some MIDI devices do not recognize the Continue command. By activating the “Always Send Start Message” option, you can avoid this problem with specific MIDI devices.

Send MIDI Clock in Stop Mode

Activate this option if you are working with a device that needs MIDI clock to run continuously in order to operate arpeggiators and loop generators.
