Alesis MMT8 bpm problem

Postby omvibes » Sat Nov 13, 2010 9:53 am

Hi all,

I have a problem with my Alesis MMT8. It seems that its bpm reading is not correct, i.e. you set it to for example 120, and it is somewhere around 118bpm. Its been checked against a computer, metronome etc, and there is definitely an issue (even with my possibly dodgy rhythmic playing!)

My set up is: Nord electro 3 controller out to the MMT8 (powered by a generic adaptor), then back into a Midi Solutions router, splitting the signal (as per keyboard split set-up) to the NE3 and a Creamware Minimax.

Anyone come across this before, or can tell me what the problem might be? Don't want to really retire the unit, as its a joy to use, apart from the bpm issue.

Thanks for your help! OM

Switch the Alesis to internal clock only.

Hello, hello, is there anyone out there? Wow, I got a reply to my thread four years after posting it... :-))
Well, I still have the MMT8, but I never was able to sync it in with the other bpm sources, so it was semi-retired. Will change it to internal clock only, and see what happens....
