Always transmit MIDI clock - even when transport is stopped.

I would like to see Drambo always transmitting MIDI clock on the selected output ports. Starting clock at the same time as the transport can bring problems with some hardware synthesizers that need time for their clock oscillators to sync and lock on to the incoming MIDI clock. I can see two options to solve this:

  • Run the clock all the time and sync the start of the transport with the next clock pulse. This would mean a maximum delay of 1/24 quarter note between pressing play and the actual start.
  • To make this more battery saving the clock start could be done like a pre-roll: Play pressed, clock starts, start is sent after x number of bars.
