Hi, I have found the tap tempo will still work with the tempo on, using the following settings to paired H9’s.
H9 One – MIDI Receive Channel – Off
Assign MIDI CC Messages > Tap Tempo CC “x” – your choice of MIDI channel
MIDI Clock No > No > Yes
MIDI Output Mode > Transmit > Transmit
H9 Two – MIDI Receive Channel “x” (whatever Channel assigned on H9 One).
Assign MIDI CC Messages > Tap Tempo CC “x” – match Receive channel
MIDI Clock settings to > Yes > Yes > No
MIDI Output Mode > Thru + MIDI clock *** It didn’t work until I thought might as well try it – Eureka! – tap tempo worked with tempo on).
ChannelH9 One set as “transmit” and the second one in receive, but only with Midi Thru/Clock
