I have stumbled across an odd phenomena that for the past several hours has caused me to doubt all my years of playing piano.
I believe the metronome track within cubase actually clicks ahead of the beat. I did some tests while recording some quarter notes at 146bpm. All of my notes were in the exact same position ahead of the beat. I then did some more tests via me recording myself clapping to an external metronome and everything was spot on. Then, I recorded myself playing along with Cubase’s metronome; however, I also recorded when my keys were being depressed-- for reference I put some quantized silent midi notes on each quarter beat–what I found is that the Cubase metronome is always clicking a few milliseconds ahead of the actual beat is occurring.
Is there a fix for this? While it is easy to just hit quantize and call it a day, it is driving me nuts!
