I see many posts for midi somehow getting shifted early in relation to the click/timing. Luckily I don’t have that issue but I do have an issue the looks the same as the midi issue but only on audio tracks. Over the years I’ve seen a few others who have asked about this but I don’t see a fix for it. So, for me, the only fix I can do is basically the same as the early midi issue. Meaning I must either move the audio recordings slightly to the right to match the midi (which is on time) or move the midi sightly left to match the “earliness” (if that’s a word) of the audio. The “fix” I use depends on the complexity of the project and which type of track would seem easier to move.
When I was able to open old projects in the version of Cubase they were created on I saw that this issue was not there in CB LE4 nor do I remember seeing it in the early CB 7 series. It is there in projects created in the later CB 7, 7.5 and 8 series.
I am recording all my audio thru a 2007 vintage PreSonus Firebox and I am using the latest (and last updated) driver that was released years ago for that interface (it is no loner supported by PreSonus).
My intentions are to purchase a new audio interface soon. Mostly because I want to get on board with Windows 10 when it is issued. Of course before upgrading to W10 I will wait until the software for my home studio (like CB) gets certified for it.
So, other than suggesting that I replace the old Firebox, I am wondering if there are any other suggestions that I might try. Really, the only things I have tried are to vary the audio driver values I list below. I’ve tried every combination available on the driver menus and I always end up using these as most things seems to work the best at these settings.
The driver is set follows:
Latency: 8.0 ms
Sample rate: 44.1 kHz
Clock source: Internal
Thanks a bunch folks
