Pro Tools: how to sync Soundbrenner Pulse & Core to DAWs

This article is specifically about how to pair our mobile app (and Soundbrenner wearables) to Pro Tools. You can accomplish this via a USB cable.

What works: Controlling the tempo of your Soundbrenner app and wearables via Pro Tools.

What doesn’t work: Controlling the tempo of Pro Tools via your Soundbrenner app and wearables. Subdivision information also cannot be sent due to a limitation of MIDI clock. 

Using Pro Tools to control your Soundbrenner wearable: 

Make sure your Soundbrenner app is set up to receive external MIDI. Next, launch Pro Tools and go to Setup -> MIDI Beat Clock. Enable MIDI Beat Clock for your Soundbrenner wearable. In most cases, it will be listed as “MIDI function [emulated]”. 


Now, you can control the tempo of your Soundbrenner wearable, as well as start and stop the metronome, directly from Pro Tools.

You now have all the information you need to get your Soundbrenner wearable set up with Pro Tools.
