Step advancing when in External Clock mode and Play engaged


In this setup I have the FLXS-1 set to External Clocking, with Gate 1 for the Clock and Gate 2 for the Rest. The Octatrack is sending MIDI data to CV.OCD and that is sending both Clock Divisions and a Reset pulse when the Octatrack is stopped.

I’ve noticed that if a Sequencer track is set to a faster division than 1/4 notes and I hit Play, the sequence advances to Step 2 (or farther) when no clock is yet present.

  • For divisions 1/5 thru 1/8 it advances one step.
  • For divisions 1/9 thru 1/11 it advances two steps.
  • For divisions 1/12 thru 1/16 it advances three steps.
