Live drums to midi clock
      21/03/06 02:21 PM
I may be trying to do the impossible, but I'd like to try and synchronise a midi setup to a tempo controlled by a live drummer

Yes I know that common sense dictates it should be the otherway around, but I'm wondering if it would be possible, it's mainly to drive tempo synced LFO's and echo's so absolute sync at all times isn't critical.

I imagine what's needed is something like:

Drum trigger -> trigger to midi converter -> 'Time averager' -> Midi Clock -> Midi Gear

I have guitar pedals with tap tempo which achieves the same thing so I know it's possible in theory, but does all the equipment needed exisit? If so name some names.
