    Hi, I’m using LP 16 to play some backing tracks and one wav click track. I need to synchronize the metromome of a looping machine to the click track played by LP 16. I want to make a loop performance synchronized to backing tracks and to the rest of the band (that follows the wav click). So I would like to set LP 16 as the master and send a midi clock message through midi port to my looping machine (the slave). Is it possible? How can I create a midi track with tempo information?

    If this feature isn’t supported yet, there is another solution to my problem? I would like to avoid the use of a computer, I’ve bought LP 16 just for this reason.
    Thank you very much, I hope I have explained the issue well



    Unfortunately the LP-16 does not sends out midi clock.
    It can send out regular midi data including controller changes and sysex data but no midi clock or midi time code.
    For this reason I cannot provide you a solution for your use case.

    Hi Laszlo,

    I saw many topics years ago about this feature (Midi clock capability) but it looks it is still not available.
    Is there any plan to get this in a further release or is there a technical hardware limitation that cannot make it possible?
    In facts, the Midi feature of the LP-16 is really nice, but I cannot understand why it can’t manage the midi tempo… probably there are no hardware clock/lfo within that cannot generate a clock?



    Unfortunately the LP-16 is lack of free resources to do that, for this reason there’s no plan to implement that feature on LP-16

    That’s a basic function!!!!!

    Now I’m in big trouble for my new professionnal music band. I need its MIDI Clock!!!

    After 2 years of using this LP-16, it’s appear like an expensive toy tat I paid 340€ in november 2016 just before price changing to 240€ 2 months later (Thomann).

    I think I’ll never buy any other Cymatic products…

    Finally, a simple MP3 player looks most powerful as your LP-16…
    Are you kidding us????

    LP-16 can’t read MIDI CLOCK
    LP-16 can’t mix audio tracks in the box
    LP-16 can’t manage USB stick directly connected on him while connected to uTool (We are in 2018 guys… Do you know every printers can do that since many years???)
    LP-16’s uTool need hours and hours at each export equally if songs has only one change since previous export…
    LP-16 looks unable to be correctly MIDI controlled…

    I’m really angry about Cymatic…

    While I planned to buy my LP-16 in november 2016, I contacted your support who confirmed it can play MIDI CLOCK.
    Finally, I did not use its function in the musical project for what I bought your machine. Now, I’m working on a new project and I was convinced about that…

    You Cymatic looks like beginners in this business…

    I have to switch to FAMC’s Liquid Tracks LT-100 immediately. It looks more professional…


    Hey Alix,

    Are you seriously comparing a stereo mp3 player which has midi implementation to the LP-16 multitrack player and not latest your device cost twice?
    I don’t think it is fair to compare a completely different device just because it fits better to your needs.
    I’m really sorry to hear that the LP-16 does not fits to your needs however there are at least couple of thousand other user who is happy with the device.
    As I am the only one who is handle support requests I’m wondering who told you that the device supports midi clock? Do you still have this email?


    I’m not sure about your device, but I think there must be midi controlled tap tempo function and stop/start metronome. I use tap tempo function of my guitar processor in every single song and it works fine. Just give it a try. Usually there are little less obvious ways to solve the problem
