Do you mean connect the out to the in of my midi interface to itself? If so I tried that, sent midi out and re-recorded it on another midi track, timing was spot on.
Edit - on close inspection it wasn’t spot on. Re-recording midi from the interface back into itself actually places the midi notes slightly earlier on the grid… but that doesn’t explain why audio is being captured late…
If not, then it might be the synth that is causing the delay. How long of a delay is it? I have a number of external synths and each have a different delay time. The longest is my Virus C with about a 10 millisecond delay.
thanks… my settings look exactly like that… 0 samples. Looks like it’s a manual job to align things after bouncing.
The delay is quite short, I haven’t measured it but it’s significant enough to cause problems where tight timing is required.
I know what you mean. A mere 3 millisecond delay is enough to drive me crazy. And that’s about as short as it gets with external gear. For me anyway. I usually just adjust the MIDI track’s delay setting to compensate.
