I'm working on a musical using Watchout for the first time. The musical director and musicians are using a click track, and I'd like to use that click track (or more specifically, MIDI messages related to that click track) to sync watchout cues to the music.
I have Qlab2 or maybe Qlab3 running on a mac mini, and Watchout running on two windows machines.
The click track will also have two or three audio files synced to it for playback through the sound system, so I can't have the click track and these other audio layers in Watchout without purchasing an audio interface for the windows machine.
I figured the best approach is to have click track trigger midi show control messages in Qlab to be sent to Watchout for this (and potentially all of the watchout cues). If so I need two midi interfaces - one for the windows machine in order to accept midi messages, and one for the mac mini, in order to send midi messages.
I'm looking at getting two of the M-Audio MIDIsport 1x1's
Does anyone have experience with these and/or any other suggestions for my setup?
