This is maddening. I have been transferring stems from Cubase 7.5 to an old Roland hard disk recorder, 8 projects in all.
First 7 worked perfectly with the Roland VS1680 slaved via MMC and MTC from Cubase. Ext sync to MTC on the Roland, set as MMC slave, Cubase sending MTC including project position, and MMC master… press play on the Roland and it waits for a signal from Cubase, press play on the computer and they lock. Flawless. Stems play through SPDIF, each stereo pair in perfect sync, even possible to edit specific locations on Roland via transport on Cubase. Just as it should be.
Then, on the 8th and last project, no joy. No syncMIDI settings changed in the Roland (all the projects are being recorded into the same VS Song), no settings changed in Cubase. Only difference is this project had a tempo track. First tried deactivating, then deleting the temp track (although it’s necessary) but that didn’t make the slightest difference.
What other project-specific settings could I be missing? I feel it has to be at the Cubase end as it is a different project, whereas nothing at all has changed on the Roland, and if I activate one of the previously successful projects to check, sync works perfectly…
