Hi we are in summerbreak and wanted to try a basic timecode lightshow (Music from a Laptop - press play - lightshow starts)
i have an Eos Ti - i know how to programm cues etc. all clear.
what's the easiest way to get timecode into the console?
I'm trying to run my cues via Reaper on my Eos Ti.
It's connected via Midi (on the back of the Console) to USB. It's a really cheap USB to Midi which has no extra driver. In Reaper i can see the Midi Adapter and it's selected.
I have both Midi in- and out plugged in my console? Right?
On show control on my console i have 1 Event with:
- Type: MIDI
- Source: 1
- Intern: off
- Extern: on (because the timing is coming from an extern source right?)
- start: 00:00:00:00
- end: 23:59:59:29
Status is in green: 00:00:00:00 (int off).
Is that the right configuration?
in my Show control setup Midi is turned on and i've not touched any of the setups but for me everything logical is turned on.
I just want to run my cues on a normal track. Basic Timecode show.
where can be my mistake?
Reaper needs to be sending MTC (MIDI Time Code) for the scenario you're describing. Does the MIDI output device you're using have any diagnostics to show it's transmitting, or do you have any way to confirm MTC output from your computer+MIDI device?
You need to have MTC Midi Timecode RX enabled in Setup > System >Show Control. (If it isn't, your Tab 11 Show Control will show "TC Disabled"). You also should have Network: MIDI Rx Source ID set to 1 since that is what you've set on your Event List 1.
In your Event List, you'll need to have Midi specified and External ON (it sounds like it already is).
Even with no events, you should see the clock moving if Eos is receiving Time code.
