Can the OP-1 tape be controlled via MIDI?


Does anyone know if the OP-1 transport controls can be triggered via midi? I was just wondering wether I could hook up a midi pedal (via a USB midi host of course) and use that to control start, stop, and record on the tape while keeping my hands free to play another instrument that’s plugged into the line in, basically turning the OP-1 into an elaborate looper pedal.


Actually I just found the answer here. The transport controls respond to the standard MMC messages apparently, which is kind of obvious now that I think about.

Not exactly, it will sync to midi clock and respond to start/stop though.

Damn. Oh well, there goes that Thursday afternoon musing. Thanks for the clarification darenager.
