hey there! I would like to sync CB7.5 MAC to Logic Pro X via MTC, which works seamless when I loop one of my interfaces’ midi ports (Edirol UM880 here) back to the corresponding input port via a phisical midi calbe (loopback) - but it will not work when just using the IAC bus, which should, in theory, just be the same thing, without a real midi cable in between…hmm
in the ladder case cubase just skips the playhead quickly to some imaginary bar 7120 or something the likes - really weird skip.
maybe anyone of you got a clue on to why it works over my edirol on a physical cable and not over the IAC bus?
of course I could just sync via that cable, but you know, firstly it is not an elegant solution, and more importantly, I want that extra of timing integrity when the MTC never leaves the mac/digital domain.
any suggestions what might go on? I assume it has something to do with an internal loopback leak of the mtc signals being forwarded and going round the system, why else would cubase go to bar 7000 in about 3 seconds?
