Chapter 92. Version 1.7.2.3

92.1. Support for USB MIDI interfaces on MagicQ PC/Mac.

MagicQ now supports receiving MIDI timecode directly from a generic USB MIDI interface or from a virtual MIDI interface in a similar way to receiving Winamp timecode. This also enables receipt of timecode from radio devices such as the Adrem TCR directly into MagicQ.

Support for MIDI timecode via a generic USB interface is only enabled when connected to a MagicQ Wing or MagicQ Interface (not MagicDMX). In addition, support for receiving MIDI notes from the generic USB MIDI interface is enabled when the system has a MagicQ Rack Mount Dongle connected.

The USB MIDI device to be used is configured from the toolbar Tools, Select MIDI device.
