midi out / trigger in

Hi

I am looking for some hardware gear which would be equipped with midi out port and a trigger IN port.
I have several midi gear, and also some drum machines with trig out, but nothing with trig in to make it all play together.

Would you have any advice of such a thing ?
THanks !

Hi
Thank you Stevil for your quick answer !
I was looking in the midi sync boxes, and not into electronic drums secitons while doing my searches...

The purpose is mainly syncing (more than triggering), i would like to send a constant trig note that could be understood as a midi tempo signal by my daw.
Would you know if there is there any specific module dedicated to this task ?
Or could i go for the cheapest one to do that job ?

thanx

Yes, exactly.
I would like that the trig out going out of my Boss DR-110 could be converted into midi clock signal, so that it can act as a tempo master to control all my midi gear.

I tried tapping tempo (i'm using Live, and it has Tap tempo), but it isn't accurate at all :(
And i have found a french program converting audio triggering into a midi signal, but it isn't very efficient chained with Live using a virtual midi cable.
So i am wondering if any hardware stuff could help... ?

normally you'd set the bpm on the master sequencer & have the rest of the chain be the slaves. is there a reason this wont work? are you trying to sync up with other "live" musicians?

Indeed; but this is true in the case all the gear is midi.
In my case, i have 3 or 4 midi gear + a non midi drum machine.
So, what i want to do is :
- the non midi drum machine gives the tempo to the others (by sending out a trig out signal, which should be converted into a midi signal).
If i can achieve a correct conversion of that trig out signal, it woudl give the tempo clock to th emidi sequencer, and then all the gear could play together.
Does this make sense ?
Cheers

Hi
It is a Boss DR-110.
I already have a midi to CV/gate converter for some cv gate synths.
What i need is something that works the other way (trig => midi)
thanks
cheers

Another one: PAiA -MIDI Controllers

Gate->midi is rather easy. I guess the hard part is to find something to translate 1 quarter note pulses, or whatever small rate, to 24 pulses per quarter note midi clock.

If it was me, I'd probably beat mix the master tempo to match the non-midi. The machinedrum with its push/pull tempo buttons is perfect for this.
