Nice to see you again.
The specs for the MiniP7 look good!
Is it possible you refer to the specs of the MP7 ? not MiniP7 ?
The previous screendump is the MP7.
I assume the former is a 4PPQ signal whereas Sync is like Sync24 or Sync48, is that right?
CLK is 1 puls per 16th note or 12th note (16 or 12 counts in a measure)
SYNC resets the Rhythm beat counter back to 0, this can be assynchronous.
Both occurences at the same time will reset the measure back to the beginning and play the first 16th of the measure (the first 16th note of beat 1)
Do some of the I/O share sockets?
Yes, All Trigger In are on the Tip, Trigger Out are on the first Ring.
Same for the CLock and Sync.
Does insterting an external trigger for an instrument override the internal sequencer?
No, the internal Sequencer stays connected. The external Trigger is ORed with the internal trigger.
The components in between the Jacks are level shifters and Diode OR gates.
This means that one needs stereo plugs for the trigger In and Out
. Which now makes me realise that I have to foresee a short circuit protection on the outputs.
You mentioned some potential grounding-related problems before regarding the use of certain sockets;
did you find a particular socket that worked for your application or did you find a workaround?
It's all done with work arounds. This also has te advantage that the output levels can be different (higher) then the internal signals going to the final preamp.
These components are added compared to the initial render of the MP7 and provide selecting audio at the respective jack while at the same time supressing that instrument to the main output.
The ring of the Jack is used as a switch with the GND of the plug. Thus using a mono plug for the audio is a necessity.
