"MIDI Clock Mode to OFF. Because VST Host doesn't send or receive MIDI clock messages via VST protocol."

Does this mean that there is no way to automatically sync REV2 to DAW tempo?

Thanks
There is a button in the editor that syncs BPM of DAW and synthesizer. But some latency issues are posible and should be fixed manually in DAW.

Anyone else having graphics corruption and slow graphics refreshing with this editor. When I turn "Always on Top" off and it gets hidden behind another window the editor's graphics disappear or get corrupted. (See the attachments) Minimizing it and restoring it fixes the issue until it gets hidden again. This is becoming a pain. None of my other vst editors have this problem...Sub37, Minitaur. In fact I also use the Integra 7 and OB-6 stand alone editors and they also do not show any of these issues.

Also, when loading a preset saved to my hard drive some settings don't recall properly. For example the other night I loaded a stacked preset and layer B wasn't sounding. When I pressed the "Edit Layer B" button on the synth Layer B suddenly started sounding as it should. This has happened twice so far that I've noticed.

I have it connected using the Midi Din connection.
Please email me at support@codeknobs.com. Don't forget to specify your setup (PC configuration, DAW etc).
BTW Sometimes graphics issues can be solved by updating on latest  video adapter drivers. In my practice this was several times.

Can someone guide me through how to use the plugin (just bought it) on Logic ProX
1. I don't understand what and where to disable the midi as instructed Power on your Prophet REV2, and connect it via USB, Open your DAW, proceed to MIDI preferences and DISABLE or REMOVE "Rev2" MIDI ports (input and output).

2. The plugin only offer me Mono or Multioutput (2xmono) Can't I switch this to stereo?
3. I want to setup a template to record both midi and a audiotrack that I can bounce down to. What is your workflow for the rest. Do you use the I/O plugin on that track? How do you handle delay compensation?

I'm currently using the Midi via USB from Rev2 and Main/A outputs to two inputs on my RME UCX.

Thankful for any guidance. :)

As I know just put editor to track in Logic and set right midi port in editor. There is no special setup in Logic.

Unfortunately I'm not Logic user. Could you explain the issue?

Can't answer for sure because I'm not Logic user as I said before. In Ableton Live this solves very easy. Some time ago I asked my friend about latency compensation in Logic and what he say:
So to fix synchronization, I see two options:
1) move the non-P6/P12 editor tracks or set the track delay parameter (or put in negative delay on the P6/P12 tracks).  I was able to get the notes sounding together with this technique, though it took some time to get the delay right.
2) have the MIDI notes on another track, so there are two tracks controlling the P6 (one for the editor and another for the midi notes) and another two controlling the P12.  With this approach the notes were in sync without having to move any tracks.

1. Ok good. Then I probably did everything right
2. Included a picture... I don't know if it is of importance because it's on a softwareinstrument channel with only MIDI anyway. Pan and Volume doesn't control anything on this channel anyway... A bit confusing since with regular softwareinstrumentchannels you do control pan, vol, and inserts and sends. So for that to work I need to make another External Midi track using the "external instrument plugin". And to bounce I need a third track? I thought that maybe the ProphetPlugin worked the same way as the "external instrument plugin"?

As you can see I'm kind of new on how to integrate outboard synth's to daw. Anyone else that uses logic and have the ultimate setup? :)

codeKnobs: have you tested DSI's REV2 VST/AU product with Ableton Live Version 10? Just wondering if anyone has used this with Version 10. I realize it should work fine regardless of the DAW they are using but curious to know other people's DAW environment currently in use with your product.

Yes it should work fine in Live 10 and Live 9. This article show how to setup plugin in Live. It's not about REV2 editor but also valid for it. http://codeknobs.com/tpe_abletion_live_tt.php

1. I don't understand what and where to disable the midi as instructed Power on your Prophet REV2, and connect it via USB, Open your DAW, proceed to MIDI preferences and DISABLE or REMOVE "Rev2" MIDI ports (input and output). Okay so this is more of an Ableton Live Direction, no need to disable the anything in Logic. Just make sure you're selecting the DSI ports in the plugins midi settings, you want to make sure the plugin is dictating the midi control to and from the synth... not the DAW ports.

2. The plugin only offer me Mono or Multioutput (2xmono) Can't I switch this to stereo? I would just use the hardware to dictate the outputs...
3. I want to setup a template to record both midi and a audiotrack that I can bounce down to. What is your workflow for the rest. Do you use the I/O plugin on that track? How do you handle delay compensation? There's no need for the IO plugin, just insert the plugin on a software instrument track... then set up an audio track for monitoring/recording the synth. I monitor direct off my pre amps (also referred to as direct monitoring). In terms of delay compensation, there's what your hearing and what you're printing... direct monitoring should help the lag (not make it sample accurate - that's impossible without midi sync clocking devices), only thing you can do to make sure you're printing accurately is to measure your lag and adjust recording delay compensation in the preferences... this is a moving target in my experience. I usually avoid this all together and reopen the session if stuff is way off grid... when it's as close to on grid and sounding good I print and adjust audio as needed, to my knowledge this is what a lot of people are doing too. It's an imperfect world in the midi realm but if it sounds funky (in a good way) leave it!!! :)

I'm currently using the Midi via USB from Rev2 and Main/A outputs to two inputs on my RME UCX.
