Re: Bidule crashes when Mobius in Host sync mode

I forgot to say that I'm working on a Mac 10.10.
The crash happens both with the AU and the VST Mobius plugin.
I'm wondering if the AU and the Vst version work the same in handling the sync.

Thank you for your answer, Per.
Not sure I've understand what you wrote.
In Mobius, sync tab, I set the default sync source as "Host". Mobius is now supposed to wait for a pulse from the host, am I right ?
Then I set the Mobius bidule  to receive the sync from the transport. I set it to "Sync Transport".
Now when I hit the play button on the transport, Mobius is supposed to receive the clock pulse from the Host and stay in sync with the transport' s tempo and meter settings.
In my case, after I hit the play button, Bidule crashes.
It doesn't happen if I disconnect all the audio cable going to the Fireface 400 output...weird !
What's wrong whit this ?
Still fighting with the machine here....

Host mode is intended to match a host protocol like AU (Mac only) and
VST. As far as I know Bidule doesn't do that "right out of the box".
Try setting the Mobius plugin to "sync: IN", maybe that works better
with the Bidule sync protocol?

If you're using Mobius 2.5 threre is something under Miscellaneous in
Global Parameters called "Host MIDI Status Export". As I understand
that, ticking the box for activating it the plugin will export MIDI
Status... so it should not be ticked for your scenario.
