QLab Timecode Help?

Recommended Posts

Was wondering if anybody could help me?

Hi Matthew,

 

Have you enabled MIDI Show Control (MSC)?

MSC works on Cue Stack 1, you can then use this Cue Stack to trigger other cue stacks.

 

The last thing to ask is what device/cable are you using to output MIDI from the Mac? We’ve seen lots of problems with customers using cheaper cables, like these:

Hi Paul,

I'm pretty sure Playback 1 is still used for MSC in ZerOS 7.9.2.

EDIT: After the update it is now the Master Playback 0.

No I haven't, however using a decent MIDI interface box such as a MOTU brand will work using MSC.
