This did not work because you need to apply a "note
on" from the midi size in order to generate the S-trig
output (note on in midi is translated to S-trig for
moog type analog synths).

That is why the following worked for you:

The keyboard sends a midi note on when each key is

I have been thinking lately on how to use beat sync to
gen a S-trig for my analog synths.  I think it can be
done rather easily and cheaply, and might be fun.
