:chin: I want the Beats and The Keys :chin:
They are a bit of a mare with Logic but we'll worth the hassle.

I was using an MC505, volca and KORG Trinity last night. Got all the makings of early 90's trance/acid right there. 8)

bought this the other night - $8 or £4.25 - controller editor for all 3 volca units. Some tasty little features and maybe even worth just for patch memory expansion.

i wonder if anyone has tried recording the volca sync signal as audio.........hmmmmmm

i reckon you could fake a sync signal from an audio track, sync signals are pulse waves mostly

then your volca would lock to your DAW like glue

Couldn't get the rv0 to install on twatbook pro. I now see why I need something like this tam!!! :circularsaw: Any other plugs for this?

apart from the innerclock sync gen which is a bit pricey i dont know

what happens if you try to record the sync signal onto an audio track?

might be worth contacting the guy that made the plugin?

I will do. I will try the other plug 1st forgot about that. It's very frustrating - the volca especially goes mad on playback!!

Looks good TT. 500 Euro though... :(

My Bass is a nightmare to sync with Logic, which I know you said it would be. It is doable but is a massive palava. It has kinda put me off hardware for a bit :cry: Wouldn't say no to a 909 though :woo:

if i was in that unsyncable "boat" i would:

get the volca bass doing something cool, unsynced

record that to an audio track

see how closely the tempo markings on the volca match up with logic at the same tempo

then i would cut out a few good bars and use them

the other possibility would be to use the slice to transient command and then rejig the resulting slices so they're in time

in a naive way i can't imagine why it would be so difficult to get hard/software working together
