So, if StartSong commands just start the sequencer, and the following frequncies of the midi clock determines the tempo- with Sonar as slave, the tempo should change as it receives new tempo information as I mess with the loop, no? I am trying to figure out new ways to work with my EDP, and getting a handle on the sequencer/EDP relationship is a huge part. I got the 'EDP as Slave' thing figured out, but acting as the master has been a bit difficult. I have tried so far in Tracktion as well as Sonar.
