I am experiencing serious MIDI latency with Micrologue.
When I add a new instrument track and select Micrologue, the first preset I try seems fine. But after changing to another preset, or making an edit to the preset, I start to notice a latency between when I press the key on my keyboard, and when I hear the sound. Each edit, or each new preset selected, increases the latency. It becomes very noticeable, like more than a 32nd note. Restarting Cubasis resolves the issue, temporarily, until I make any further edits or preset selections.
I tried with Microsonic, the issue doesn’t occur, but if the latency has developed after using Micrologue, it is still there when changing the instrument to Microsonic. However, it does not affect any Microsampler tracks, or any tracks playing external instruments, I can select/unmute these and there is no latency on these tracks, but it does affect the track where Micrologue was edited and any Classic Machines track which was previously created, which play the note a fraction of a second after the other tracks. Again, restarting Cubasis resolves the issue.
Obviously, this makes editing a patch on Micrologue impossible.
This is not during recording or playback, this is when Cubasis is in “standby” mode, receiving MIDI from an external controller via a Audio/MIDI interface.
Hardware: iPad Air 3rd Gen (2019)
Audio/MIDI Interface: iConnectivity ConnectAUDIO 2/4 and Apple CCK
Software: iPadOS 14.3, Cubasis 3 V3.2.1, iConnectivity Firmware latest (V2.0.1)
I have previously reported similar MIDI latency issues, but they seemed to be caused by a MIDI plugin. There is definitely no MIDI plugin involved here. Maybe I am doing something wrong, perhaps with MIDI input channel selection or whatever, but my understanding is that Cubasis is supposed to listen to any MIDI input and apply it to the track, and if you don’t want to hear that input on a particular track, you just mute that track. That is how I’ve been working so far.
