I was wondering if anyone can shed some light in something that bugs me.
My PC is very powerful and in reality I should have no issues, but, as per my experience, the more I use a Cubase session , the more problems I have.
Spikes, jumps, glitches, etc.
So I either delete preferences, which this seems to do the trick, or I have to put the Buffer Samples up as much as possible.
When the buffer is set to 512 or 1024, the MIDI is literally all over the place!
It lags terribly and when I play fast 16th notes are all out of time both when playing and how they are recorded.
At first I thought it was me maybe being rusty, but I reduced the buffer down to 128 samples and the performance felt and was recorded much better and far more accurately. I also did not use any plugins that could cause latency etc.
I have one electronic piano and one small Alesis keyboard, and both produced the same results.
The piano is connected via MIDI through my MOTU 828 mk3 Hybrid and is connected to my PC via USB and the Alesis is connected directly to my PC via USB.
I activated the System Timestamps for Windows Midi Inputs, use Device ‘Direct Music’ and system timestamps for ‘Direct Music’ inputs.
I always had the same issue, but I am running a pretty powerful PC at this point and I was hoping that the MIDI issues would be eliminated.
Am I missing something here? Anyone has 100% perfect timing when playing and recording with high Buffer Samples? If so, how?
