Looking for MIDI CLOCK divider! If they exist.

Looking for MIDI CLOCK divider! If they exist.

At present I have all sorts of MIDI to analog devices that can take
MIDI and slow down the analog clock such as my 2 CVOCDs.
These work great for CV enabled devices.

However, I was wondering if a purely digital midi device exists that
takes an incoming MIDI Clock and divides it by 2 or 4, so that
120bpm becomes 60 or 30bpm.

I am using a Korg Electribe EA-1 as a motion sequenced filter for
my Monotribes and would love to have the filter sweep slower,
as it is linked to the tempo of incoming clock.
The Electribe EA-1 does not have an analog trigger in though.

I have 2 MIDI SOLUTION Event Processor Plus's, but I don't see a
way that I can intercept the MIdi Clock and make divide by n modifications.


My googleFu came up blank except for some DIY and specialist items.

the audio werkstatt midi clock divider seems like the best option, it can divide down to 1/9, its pretty inexpensive too

Yes, it does look like the one solution!
I have emailed Midi Solutions about the Event Processor Plus.
I am fairly dense with its programming, so I asked if it is possible
with the EPP.

If it is not, I guess the Audio Werkstatt is the way to go,

A MIDIPal or a clone running the MIDIPal firmware and its Clock divider function.

I have a Midigal, but is used to control my Abyss with transpose and poly/roundrobin/stack uses.

It seems like it should be theoretically possible given the use of variables to count the ticks and emit some division but I'm not certain. If Midi Solutions gets back to you with a way, do share!

I do a lot of programming with the MEP and this sounds like a fun challenge but I just don't have time now to devote to it...

I will.
Way above my paygrade. I see there is timing clock in there,
but I will defer to someone better at coding.

I have a spare MEP, so if it can do the task, I will use it.
(The other MEP polychains 2 Blofelds together, fairly complete
with program change, after touch, mod and pitch wheel between
controller and slave. It is a simple midi channel 1 then 2 then 1....
with one Blofeld on 1 and the other 2)
(programmed by Midi Solutions, thanks to them for their expertise)

I've used my MidiPal for this

SND ACME-4 can do this too

UPDATE:
The Event Processor and Event Processor Plus will do it.
Here is my code for divide by 4:

F0 00 00 50 29 00 F7
{ Clear All Settings - allow all MIDI events not specified below to pass through unchanged }

F0 00 00 50 29 04 00 01 01 04 7F F7
F8
{ Setting #1 : When MIDI Timing Clock events are received, jump to the next step of the sequence beginning at setting #2 , with 1 event per step, containing a total of 4 steps. When the last step of the sequence is reached, loop back to the first step. Continue to process settings (right-click to edit) }

F0 00 00 50 29 05 01 F7
F8
{ Setting #2 : Sequence Event: MIDI Timing Clock event. Continue to process settings (right-click to edit) }

F0 00 00 50 29 15 02 F7
F8
{ Setting #3 (Powers up in the OFF state): Sequence Event: MIDI Timing Clock event. Continue to process settings (right-click to edit) }

F0 00 00 50 29 15 03 F7
F8
{ Setting #4 (Powers up in the OFF state): Sequence Event: MIDI Timing Clock event. Continue to process settings (right-click to edit) }

F0 00 00 50 29 15 04 F7
F8
{ Setting #5 (Powers up in the OFF state): Sequence Event: MIDI Timing Clock event. Continue to process settings (right-click to edit) }

F0 00 00 50 29 01 05 F7
F8
{ Setting #6 : Filter all MIDI Timing Clock events. Continue to process settings (right-click to edit) }
