Re: MIDI notes out of sync caused by Delay Compensation?

I don’t think I’m ready to switch DAWs at this point! ;-)

I guess one workaround is to pencil a few notes to the grid, Commit, then measure the difference so I can nudge the audio later after I...

Re: MIDI notes out of sync caused by Delay Compensation?

Haha ok! So... how does one record and make music using Instrument Tracks and MIDI in Pro Tools? Maybe this is why so much modern music sounds either 100% quantized or sloppy ahead of the beat? ;-)

Re: MIDI notes out of sync caused by Delay Compensation?

Ok, I opened a support case with Avid so we'll see what comes of that.


In the meantime, still trying a few tests. Strangely enough, I used the Commit function to render some midi notes that are...

Re: MIDI notes out of sync caused by Delay Compensation?

This one at least seems logical to me in that the audio is coming in late due to unavoidable latency from the computer to the keyboard, then from the audio making its way back into Pro Tools.

Re: MIDI notes out of sync caused by Delay Compensation?

Here's the thing that bugs me. The notes are recorded EARLY on the timeline which seems very weird to me. If it's due to midi or usb keyboard latency, then shouldn't the notes be LATE?

There is...

Re: MIDI notes out of sync caused by Delay Compensation?

Wow, this is kind of crazy! This seems like a major fundamental issue that affects anyone who makes music with VIs. Maybe this is why there is so much quantized music made in Pro Tools haha! Record a...

Re: MIDI notes out of sync caused by Delay Compensation?

Thank you! I had a feeling it wasn’t just me. I mostly work with recording live sources and when I use samplers, it’s often not necessarily musical. I work in film post-production. But I have been...

Re: MIDI notes out of sync caused by Delay Compensation?

Just did another test where I used an Instrument Track with NO instrument at all and tapped to a click track. The resultant notes are about 160 ms early to the click!


Is there someone willing to...

Just changed the buffer size from 128 to 1024 and did the test again and it was the same result

Re: MIDI notes out of sync caused by Delay Compensation?

Against the click it was averaging about 220 ms early.


For this test I'm monitoring though built-in audio on a Macbook Pro (no interface). Some regular headphones.

Re: MIDI notes out of sync caused by Delay Compensation?

I just tried it with a click track. As before the midi notes are way early compared to the click. I just rendered a piece of the click and took a screenshot so you can see the result.

Re: MIDI notes out of sync caused by Delay Compensation?

Thanks, XJENSEN. I'm playing along with a stereo audio track, a bounce of my session I made to take the other tracks out of the equation.


I'll try a few more tests with a click as well.

Re: MIDI notes out of sync caused by Delay Compensation?

MIDI notes out of sync caused by Delay Compensation or something else?

If I have Delay Compensation engaged while recording a MIDI performance, the resultant MIDI notes are early (very early!) relative to the grid. If I turn off DC it's normal. Is there some way around...

Re: Import - Overlay...why doesn't it work??

The downstream automation from session 1 blows away the automation in session 2. It's logical, but not useful or helpful.


One potential solution would be a new feature that allows you to import...

Re: Fellow Sound Nerds..Check your Sync

Better Call Saul S2E10 has a scene at a firing range and they use "realistic" sync. It's pretty jarring but also pretty effective because the target is right in the foreground in a close-up shot. You...

Re: 003 and El Capitan

The kernel_task should normally be a fraction of that (typically between 5-20%). It also eats up RAM excessively. How much of your RAM is it using? Look at the "Real Mem" column.

Check for mute automation. Either disable the mute playlist or edit it manually to remove the unintended mutes.

Same on a Mac. If you're working on a control surface, "Ctrl" isolates the channel from its group.
