This is a suggestion for a future software update.
Until now the arpeggiator switches the tempo control automatically to the external (MIDI-)clock as soon as it receives the MIDI-clock. And also it immediately changes back to internal clock as soon as the clock "vanishes" at the MIDI In.
Both behaviours can be annoying: I do not want necessarily the arpeggiator beeing clocked by MIDI - even if there is MIDI-Clock at the input.
Also the other way around: many drum machines or synch-boxes stop sending MIDI-Clock after pressing stop. Then it is very annoying, if the arpeggiator continues playing and - even worse - continues in a completely different tempo (this happened to me playing a live gig with 500 people dancing in front of me ... not a cool feeling
So my suggestion is: MIDI-clock should be enabled or disabled by pressing the "Tap"-button for more than two seconds.
If MIDI-clock is selected, the Tap-LED should be lit continously.
Another possibility would be: make the Tap button become a "function"- or "shift"-button. Then the keys of keyboard yould be used to select various functions. The transpose Up/Down buttons would be used to select the values for the function, pressing "Tap" again leaves the function mode.
Tap 2 seconds -> Lowest C => enables function "clock select", Tap LED is constantly lit.
select with Up/Down
LED 0=internal clock
LED -1=MIDI clock
LED -2=Gate In is used as Clock in
Tap 2 Seconds => stores the setting and returns to normal mode
This could be used for the global settings too.
What do you think about?
