MIDI Sync options

It looks like Jammr sends the timing clocks (24/beat, tempo), but does not send anything about position.

It would be nice if it could send either the MIDI SPP (song position pointer), or possibly just a MIDI Start at the restart of any interval (song position 0). I am hoping to have it drive loops in sync with the Jammr metronome.

I believe the options should be:
- tempo only (default)
- SPP + tempo
- MIDI Start + tempo

…and they should be mutually exclusive

Thanks for the suggestions, shawnb! I have added it to the todo list.

Which MIDI device or software are you using together with jammr?

I was hoping to just sync up my DAW, SONAR.

That way, I could put anything I want in there!

This should also eliminate “drift”, as once an interval, everything is brought back in sync.

Great, I'll investigate this and try testing with SONAR.

I'll help test, too, if you like. Decades of experience with Cakewalk & SONAR…

My first version of Cakewalk:
