Anyone using Sunvox with LSDJ?

Sunvox is beautiful!
My only gripe is that I can’t sync it up with my other favourite tracker; LSDJ.
I know analog synch is an option by using Raspberry pi GPIO, but I’d rather use MIDI synch since I find it more reliable (might not be really, but it’s a gut feeling I have).

Any other suggestions? I believe Seq24 sends MIDI clock, is anyone using any external sequencing tricks? Cheers!

What sync methods can be used in the LSDJ?
SunVox 1.9.3 can only receive the MIDI Play/Stop commands from the other apps.
The other sync features will be added later.

However I tried getting around it, it always came back to having some kind of sync signal originating from Sunvox.
Therefore, I decided to dedicate note C-2 of MIDI channel 16 to work as a kind of a click track.

I made this Arduino sketch that's compatible with Trash80s Arduinoboy for Teensy, if LSDJ (or Volca, Pocket Operator, etc) is set to analog synch, one can make a click track in Sunvox that outputs a metronome MIDI track that will be translated into analog pulses by the Arduino.

If Sunvox is run on a Raspberry pi this can be accomplished by using the GPIO, but with this Arduino sketch it can work to synch up with any unit that can use MIDI via USB. =)
Hope someone finds this useful.
