This is an excerpt from the 📖Playback User Guide.


MIDI Clock can be used to sync the tempo of virtual instruments, external controllers, guitar delay pedals, and more with Playback. Send MIDI Clock data out of any selected MIDI port while Tracks are playing to keep any MIDI Clock-supported instruments, software and/or music equipment in time with Playback.

What you'll need:

  • Playback Premium Seat: MIDI Clock is available only with Playback Premium (which is also included in the Live Bundle or MultiTracks One).

  • A reliable Connection Method to your external device or software.
    (Typically a wired MIDI port between MIDI devices, or wired network devices)

Setup in Playback

Select MIDI Ports to Send MIDI Clock

Navigate to the MIDI Settings tab, and scroll to the bottom of the page:

Tap on the "Select Ports" row, and select which available MIDI Ports you would like to send MIDI Clock to.

Once enabled, MIDI Clock will be sent to selected MIDI Ports anytime tracks are playing. The outgoing tempo will update in real time based on the BPM of the currently-playing song or click track.
