I would like for it to be a way to send MIDI Clock out to an external keyboard so that the Arpeggiator can be synced to the tempo in Studio One the same way I can do in Pro Tools. Thanks!

This feature already exists in Studio One. 

  • Open MIDI Properties for your your MIDI Output: 
  • Click on Studio One in the ToolBar, then select Options (or hit Control and Comma)
  • Then click on External Devices and select the MIDI Device for the Output you want to send Sync from and click Edit. 
  • Then Check the box the appropriate box:

You can choose to send MIDI Clock to this Instrument and/or use MIDI Clock Start by checking the appropriate boxes. You should send MIDI Clock to your Instrument if it has a built-in sequencer or components (such as LFOs) that need to sync to Studio One. Enabling MIDI Clock Start will send MIDI Clock Start signals to your Instrument.
