Sync bpm with live drum input

We are having a little concert where I cant be performing and hitting the keys simultaneously. The idea was to arrange the synth track in cubase and just let it play while i’m running around the stage acting stupid. Only problem I see is the bmp. it will sound awfully out of sync if the drummer misses the fixed bpm of cubase with just a fraction.

So the question is:

Is there any way to sync my Cubase 7 arrangement to a live drummer input?

Why not have the drummer follow a clicktrack.
What you are suggesting is subject to the laws of Murphy!

Good idea! something like ‘Tap Tempo’ triggered by USB pads. Doesn’t LoopMash do that? :bulb:

The usual way of doing this is to have the drummer follow a click from the sequencer…

Not the answer you’re looking for, but its good to know about this option:
