Please allow manual starting and stopping of transport even when synced to MIDI clock
None of my hardware synthesizers behaves like this and does not allow me to start their sequencers when MIDI clock is present.
So please find a way to allow the transport to be manually started and stopped when the device is synced to MIDI clock. I find the current implementation very limiting. My suggestion would be to allow this when Ableton Link is enabled (even without any peer present).
In addition I would even go a step further and allow syncing with MIDI clock while ignoring start/stop messages. I am often jamming with others, and we just want to keep our sequencers in sync without starting/stopping our band mates gear.
