MIDI CC to control MIDI Clock / tempo?

I essentially want to control tempo with a knob.

If I have a controller that only sends MIDI CC and I need to control the rate of the MIDI Clock with that MIDI CC, can this be done with MIDIFlow ? It's not clear to me when looking at the documentation; https://www.midiflow.com/documentation/#midi-clock

Thanks!

Hi,
in order to control parameters of Midiflow, you would create a controller assignment: https://www.midiflow.com/documentation/#controller-assignments

Unfortunately, you cannot control the value of the clock tempo that way, that is a missing feature, indeed. The only thing you could do is to assign the "tap tempo" to a pad. Or, you could create a couple of programs with different tempi, and select those programs by turning the knob.

But setting any tempo using a knob is not possible right now.

Best,
Johannes

Thanks a lot Johannes for the followup :-)

I hope Midiflow will add this feature eventually. For my immediate needs, I found MidiFire which offers the feature.

Sincere regards -- Alex
