Ok I literally created a Forum profile to ask this question because I am so frustrated. I have searched and investigated for a solution but everyone has different set ups and I can’t find a solution to this issue that I have never had before.
First my new set up:
HP Pavillion 595-p0084
3.5GHZ i7 processor
32GB DDR4 RAM
WINDOWS 10 (on a 130GB SSD)
FocusRite 18i20 USB
2TB Glyph SSD (for VST libraries)
-ALL Synthology Pianos
-Garritan C7 (amazing BTW)
-all Chris Hein solo strings
-Spitfire Hans Zimmer piano
-EastWest HollyWood Orchestra Diamond (including all solo instruments / diamond choir)
MIDI keyboard controller:
Roland Fantom G6 MIDI out to FocusRite IN. FocusRite connected to CPU by USB.
Live play of VSTs, no latency issues whatsoever, sounds/plays great.
I just set this rig up, installation of everything with the Cluster F iLok turned out to be (getting $200 out of me to “repair” my iLok key that worked JUST fine, but I digress)…
I loaded in Synthology American D grand piano, recorded a free (no metronome or quantization) lower piano accompaniment on track 1. Played it back, sounded great.
Recorded track 2 (same piano) melody, played it back and track 2 plays slightly before track 1 when I play back both tracks together.
Why is Track 2 out of sync? And out of sync BEFORE track 1?
And if it was a latency issue then wouldn’t track 1 have been “early” when played back just like track 2 and both would play together synced together?
I am at a loss as to what parameters to alter, would it be something to change in the FocusRite interface control screen? Or would it be something within Cubase under Device.
I’ve been using Cubase since 2012 and never had this happen before on my old Acer Desktop CPU and my old trusty M-Audio FireWire interface.
I upgraded everything because of the sound libraries I bought to record my project with.
Thank you to anyone who reads this and may have a solution. I honestly have been looking since last night for a solution and I’ve messed around a little with a couple things I’ve read on other forums but nothing has solved this issue yet. I do have all the latest drivers and updates on all hardware.
