Hi, brand new Iconnect Midi4+ user here.
I bought this device primarily for the filtering capabilities, I have a stack of DIN midi hardware in a live jam type of arrangement that all needs a tight clock signal, but chaining them together causes all kinds of interference problems.
So the first thing i'm trying to do is route one din midi input to all the din midi outputs, and filter everything out except the clock. I've tried both software but i'm using the iConfig application on Windows 10 because nothing showed up on Auracle to configure.
The routing menu is straight forward, but i'm having trouble with the filtering part. The manual does not go into much detail about what each global filter category deals with so i'm using trial and error to try and achieve a clean scenario where everything is kept in time without any other messages getting through.
Seems that 'time code' is not what the iconnect considers clock data, instead it's bundled into 'Real time events'. This is a problem because that category also seems to include start/stop events, which I presumed would be under the 'Reset Events' category, separate from the clock. Ideally they would all be separate, my config would be clock to everything, stop to everything, start only to the drum machine. That's what I was expecting to be able to do with the filtering tabs.
Some devices have sequencers and arpeggiators so they need clock, but having all the sequencers start in a live jam whenever play is pushed on the master device is a headache, especially when other people bring their gear to join a jam - In that situation I need a DIN midi out port to hand over to the guest which is filtered of everything except clock so they can keep their stuff in time and start/stop their sequences at will.
Am I missing something in the software or can the midi4+ not actually filter transport events separately from clock?
