I've successfully set Mainstage to transmit a midi clock to a USB connected AKAI MPK49 controller, but I also need it to transmit the clock to my Alesis io 26 audio interface. We use a Korg R3 that takes its midi clock from the Alesis interface.


The setup used to work a dream, but my laptop was stolen and this final re-setup step is unsolved.


All the audio signals from MainStage are correctly reaching the Aleis interface. But the midi signal is not.


Maybe it's to do with the setup in the Apple Audio MIDI set up utilitiy? I'm on the latest Lion OS.


Gig soon, and panick starting to set in ;-)

    Add an external channel strip to MS, route it to the Akai and enable MIDI clock on that channel strip.


    Audio MIDI Setup is never necessary for Logic, GB or MainStage.
