These pedals do not have an in-built isolator in the MIDI port. If you are experiencing noise issues, where your MIDI messages are causing a “tick” sound in your audio, there is likely a ground loop. Strymon sells a 5-pin MIDI to TRS cable which has an inbuilt opto-isolator for these devices. This should help resolve the noise issues. Alternatively, you can try cutting the ground in your TRS MIDI cable and check if it resolves the issue.
MIDI Clock not working on the Timeline
Presets on the Timeline can be set to follow the incoming MIDI Clock, or follow its own pre-set BPM. If the MIDICL setting is turned ff for the preset, it will not respond to MIDI Clock.
Connecting Strymon TRS MIDI Devices
It is possible to use a standard TRS cable to connect the Omniport directly to the Strymon TRS MIDI IN port. The Omniport settings needs to be set to “MIDI OUT - Standard”.
Alternatively, you can use a Type A DIN5 to TRS cable adaptor to connect the DIN5 MIDI OUT port directly.
