MIDI (MTC) with Phantom

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm at the moment trying my first steps with MIDI and ZerOS.
No I'm wondering: Is there a way to use MIDI on Phantom (currently 7.9.5)? For instance with loopMIDI (https://www.tobias-erichsen.de/software/loopmidi.html) and reaper (https://www.reaper.fm/)?

With that I could prepare my show at home without the need to sit in front of the console ;-)

Thanks and best regards
Sven

Hi Sven,

Currently you can’t use MIDI Triggers on Phantom. You can however configure MIDI settings, save the show, and load into the console for use with a physical MIDI connection.

For more information, take a look at the article below...

Hope this helps,

Hi Edward,

thanks for the quick reply. That wasn't exactly what I was hoping for but somehow what I expected 😌
Maybe this would be worth a user story in your backlog. At least from my perspective exactly all those MIDI show creations (especially with capture in place) would totally make sense to be able to do them in an office instead off "on front of the console".

One more question regarding MIDI and the MTC section in the linked article:
"...Any cue across any playback can be assigned a Time Code stamp, meaning that when this clock time is received, this cue will be triggered....":
On reverse closure that means if I want to use MTC for more then one song I have to somehow deal with an offset in the MTC, meaning I can't start the timecode for all songs at 0:00:00:00, right?

Thanks and best regards
Sven

That's correct - an example in this situation would be to have each song number as the hour number, and then the timings specific to that song.

For example song 1 could start on 01:00:00:00 and have its specific timings, and then song 2 would start at 02:00:00:00. After the first song your MIDI source could then stop the first clock, and start the next for each song.

Hope this helps,

Edward
