If you have an Android phone with operating system Android 6 or above, you can synchronize the Soundbrenner Pulse to your DAW using MIDI feature in the Android app. We recommend using Android 7+ for better results.
You can send MIDI messages over USB - Bluetooth soon will follow.
Using USB MIDI:
Connect your Android phone to your computer via USB cable.
Set the USB configuration to MIDI.
You can access the USB configuration by pulling down the notification drawer and selecting the USB sticky notification.
Go to Metronome by Soundbrenner App
-> App Settings
-> MIDI and enable MIDI
-> Make sure the MIDI channel is the same on your DAW and in the app, leaving it as 1 should be fine in most cases
-> You can set the MIDI Clock depending on your need (Send and Receive recommended)
-> You should be able to see Android USB Peripheral Port as listed as Input and Output device
If you want the DAW to control the app and connected Soundbrenner Pulse:
Go to your DAW's MIDI preferences/setup. In this example, we are using Ableton Live.
In Ableton, go to Preferences -> MIDI tab
Here you will see the Android's input and output ports.
Enable Sync switch of the phone's output port in this menu.
Go to Metronome app -> App Settings -> MIDI
Choose the USB Peripheral input port
Once you are connected, the player in the app will display EXT Sync status.
Now when you press play on Ableton Live, the app and the connected Soundbrenner Pulse will follow.
If you experience latency, you can adjust the latency in the submenu of Ableton's port (see the picture above).
Just as a reminder, to go back quickly to the MIDI settings, you can tap on the MIDI port icon.
If you want the Metronome app and the Soundbrenner Pulse to control DAW's tempo:
Go to your DAW's MIDI preferences/setup. Again, we are using Ableton Live in this example. Enable Sync switch of the phone's input port in this menu.
Then enable EXT button on Ableton Live.
Choose the USB Peripheral output port
Now when you press play on the app and the connected Soundbrenner Pulse, Ableton Live will follow. If you experience latency, you can adjust the latency in the submenu of Ableton's port (see the picture above).
