    I'm sure there's an obvious answer to this question but I can't for the life of me figure this out how to make a switch tap tempo to control the PBC's Master Clock. I'd like to have one of the switches on a preset's Local Page handle this.

    I found an older post stating that it's just a matter of setting the switches LED to Flash with the Global Tempo, but that's not working for me, even with that setting, the LED doesn't flash. Is there a system action that starts / stops the clock?

    Flash w/ Tempo should be on, and also Update on Preset Change (This is a poorly documented thing that I keep meaning to fix)

    Thanks Ron, I'll give that a shot tonight.

    So the button type should be IA, Flash w/ Tempo and Update State On Preset Change should be checked. I also have "Calculate Tempo from Flashes" checked and MIDI Clock set to Master in the MIDI tab, if that matters.

    Yes, that looks correct, but you probably don't want "Calculate tempo from flashes". That's for devices that send tempo flashes to the PBC (Axe-Fx and Kemper).

    Okay cool. Is the expectation that the Tap Tempo switch will flash with the tempo or will the LED be solid?

    It should flash (assuming that the On Color and Off Color settings are not set to the same color)
