Can the response midi gateway receive midi input over USB?

I haven’t had much success attempting to do this. Response gateway was connected to Mac Pro via USB. The gateway shows up, but I wasn’t able to get it to receive midi from Ableton live.

  • Sample from Midi Monitor:

    13:18:27.137 To ETC MIDI (00:c0:16:04:77:0a) MTC Quarter Frame 75
    13:18:27.139 From ETC MIDI (00:c0:16:04:77:0a) MTC Quarter Frame 75
    13:18:27.145 To ETC MIDI (00:c0:16:04:77:0a) MTC Quarter Frame 80
    13:18:27.147 From ETC MIDI (00:c0:16:04:77:0a) MTC Quarter Frame 80

    I'm using nomad to receive the timecode for testing purposes, and it seems to have a delay (maybe 10-20 frames) from the midi source to EOS. Is this normal for EOS?

  • I wouldn't expect a delay of 1/3rd to 2/3rd of a second between MTC sending device and Eos software receiving.  Are you doing this testing using the round-trip loop you described earlier?  

    I took a screen capture of MIDI-OX sending MTC over USB to a RSP-MIDI Gateway in 2.2.1, looped back into itself, then on the network for Eos to listen to.  I am seeing, at most, 4 frames difference between these two clocks, but often no difference.  And this is an atypical setup, requiring the MIDI Gateway to be both sender and receiver, with data transiting the USB link and being handled in two different pieces of software inside the same computer (which is also doing lots of other tasks, like capturing video).

  • Alright, it's been 7 months but I'm just coming back to this. It looks like there is no way that isn't roundabout and abnormal to take MTC from a computer into the gateway over USB and have it send that MTC over a the network. My question is: Can I use UDP to have the gateway by the console (actual use case is with an Ion Classic) and use the 5-pin out into the console's 5-pin input? Or can UDP be sent straight to the console? The MTC source is Ableton 11 on a Mac Pro.
