@howard Thanks for your help.
It looks like the SR16 will put out MIDI clock that the two pedals can both use. Although, from what you shared, it seems like you can’t just use the SR16 as a MIDI clock. You have to create a drum track and then the clock sends out a signal based on that track. Not that this is big deal. The SR16 would be used for a drum track anyway.
I’ve read where the MIDI clock can be unpredictable but I wasn’t able to figure out if that’s across the board, or if it was because these people were using old systems that had other problems going on. I’m just going to have to try it and see what happens.
He doesn’t have the time (or interest) to learn Reaper and even if he did, he doesn’t have a reliable computer at the moment. He is very outdoorsy person and a computer isn’t a real priority for him. That’s the main reason I’m trying to get this running without going down that road.
@itsratso The best I can tell is this would only be used for triggering a patch or set of patches for song changes or even changes during songs. It might be cool to set up that system of control but I wouldn’t consider it necessary or even relevant, especially if your just playing for yourself.
