I’m on C5 with Edirol AI on Xp.
I recently needed to record ultra tight stabs with immediate attack, so I had to deal with super exact timing of midi recording.
I noticed that using Direct Monitoring notes are recorded very slightly in advance. I tried selecting/deselecting “use system Timestamp”, but no change.
De-selecting Direct Monitoring, and using a low audio buffer size value, the recording is tight - and I am happy with it. Obviously later down the line with the project progressing, I will need to increase the audio buffer size, and therefore also the latency will increase.
Is is normal that Direct Monitoring is not super perfectly tight?
