MIDI clock sync lag

MIDI clock sync lag
« on: January 04, 2019, 08:16:18 AM »

Syncing my OB6 desktop to Logic Pro 9 using MIDI clock.

When the sequencer isn't playing the BPM LEDs read ---. They don't show a value unless the sequencer is running. Also there is some lag before the OB6 matches the BPM. The numbers flicker or if the BPM has changed in Logic since the last time the sequencer was started the OB6 has to catch up from there.

Is this normal behaviour? Is it just 'cosmetic' and is the OB6 in fact synced from as soon as the sequencer starts?

It can make the FX go squiffy, delay time catching up for example, which isn't ideal.
