Stumbled on a problem which has stopped my production in its tracks.
i mainly work with midi drums along with bass,guitar’s and vocals.Not had the chance to Finnish much recently due to being busy so not rendered my drums they are still in midi and i have tracked audio to them.recently i have been messing about with scoring style music just for fun and had some good music coming from it.
I decided to make a full hour piece of music and was using padshop for some texture.i decided to mixdown the track to audio and then added some hats style percussion to emulate a ticking clock.the already rendered track had a hit in the middle of it which in midi was perfectly in time but slightly out only by a few samples when i rendered it.when i rendered the hats which were perfectly quantised in midi they were slightly late too this then led me to start testing with other vsti’s eg superior drummer ect.every time i render a 1/4 kick drum perfectly quantized they end up behind the beat in audio.This really bothering me because i have spent time tracking well played and timed parts to midi drums that i plan to render to audio to use plugins on.even if i was to just mixdown the song without bouncing the drums first when i do mixdown the drums are going to be slightly out which will spoil my hard work in midi humanising my drums and will effect the over all timing of my tracks.
I have contacted steinberg support about this they have advised i trash my preference folder but this has made no difference.i will be getting back to them tomorrow so hopefully they will be able to help me work this out but in the meantime I was wondering have any of you experienced something similar or could you please try this on your system and see if you experience the same.
Thanks in advance
