I’m working on a VST heavy midi project and it seems any new midi I add is being recorded almost a full 16th note earlier than I play it! So for example I’ll play a drum part, when I record it sound perfectly in time with the click and the rest of my tracks, yet when I playback the recorded track it will sound (and look) early against the grid. So to me, Cubase is recording my midi earlier than its actually played, so (guessing here) it seems that the midi tracks are not following plugin delay compensation or something because its impossible to record something before its happens. But whats weird is this “early recording” happens both with “constrain Delay Compensation” on or off, using either instrument racks or tracks, both steinbergs own synths or 3rd party synths!
Here are my VST audio settings if it helps:
Input latency: 11.833ms
Output latency: 7.229ms
ASIO-Guard Latency: 0.000ms
HW Sample rate: 48k
HW Pull up/Down: Off
Audio priority: Normal
Multi processing: enabled
ASIO-GUARD: not enabled
Disk Preload: 2 seconds
Adjust for record latency: not enabled
My interface is at a buffer of 256.
When I play any midi notes, I do not hear any noticeable latency between when I press the key and when I hear the sound, so its not like I’m trying to compensate for a large buffer size when recording, and even if I was that would cause the midi to be recorded late, not early correct? Could this have anything to do with Cubase plugin delay compensation? Like I said, I’ve tried recording with both “constrain Delay Compensation” on and off and it doesn’t seem to make a difference.
Any hep would be GREATLY appreciated as this is really becoming a problem!! Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
