-===== Hard beat sync =====+===== Midi input to set bpm ===== 
 +Enabling Midi input to set BPM allows QuickShow to keep devices in sync. MIDI beat clock, or simply MIDI clock, is a clock signal that is broadcast via MIDI to ensure that several MIDI-enabled devices such as a synthesizer or music sequencer stay in synchronization. ​
  
 +===== Virtual DJ to BPM =====
 +When you Enable Virtual DJ to set BPM, QuickShow will listen to the beat send by the [[https://​www.virtualdj.com/​plugins/​index.html?​addonid=80462|LaserBeat plugin]] which can be installed in virtual DJ. Note that this signal can travel over an ethernet network.)

 +===== Hard beat sync =====
 Each Cue player has own time state variable. Player position. It includes time in Seconds and separate for Beats. This is great thing, you can make cue play faster, or slower. And start at any moment and it will count beat from the moment of click. However, as you see, cue players are independent and might be not synchronized. How to make them synchronized by beat? Easy, we need to link all playes to one global variable, a source of beat. "hard beat sync" enable this centralize mode. So, this is a switch between own cue player beat position, and global beat position. Each Cue player has own time state variable. Player position. It includes time in Seconds and separate for Beats.
