Hi. So I’ve been reading the forums and trying to pinpoint why the midi notes are recording early. Rather than switching to another DAW, I am giving this a shot. I tried out the virtual keyboard function and the notes were actually recorded right on time so I’ve narrowed this down to a USB only issue.
When using my USB controller I can see the keys on the piano roll lighting up exactly on time so it’s not an issue with Cubase receiving the data at the incorrect time. Still for some reason it is adding the midi notes 1/32nd to 1/16th early. I am not 100% certain but I also suspect the notes are also drifting because the performance comes out a lot sloppier than I hear when I’m actually playing it.
Can anyone give me some direction on what to troubleshoot? I read about updating USB drivers but mine are all up to date.
System: Alienware Aurora R7, all SSD, 16 gigs DDR4
Controller: Komplete Kontrol S61, Oxygen 25 (same result on both)
Apollo Twin, Presonus Studiolive, MOTU 896 (same result on each)
PS. I don’t mind switching to good old fashion midi cables but I’m not sure how to go about it. I could get a Midi to USB cable but wouldn’t that still be going through USB? Funny, I’ve had one for about 10 years that was never used and I finally threw it away about 6 months ago.
