hi italo. i connected my novation remote zero directly to the eclipse as it can send clock and cc messages simultaneously without merging. the eclipse tempo remained rock steady no matter how much cc data i sent! it must be the midi merger then..dammit…i just bought it to replace my old philip rees one (and it wasn't cheap), because i thought it would do a better job! i should have known the eclipse wasn't at fault. ho hum…will i ever get this to work?
