Default Midi is played on time but midi notes are early on play back.

Im using PT 7.3 on a g5 (power PC).
When im recording the notes sound in time. When I play it back its off. Insert quantize is not on.

I recorded audio of me recording the midi and when you compare the 2 you can see im playing it in time by looking at the audio but the midi is early.

Here is the image, The first track is the snare (this is what I was recording). at the bottom you can see the kick(already recorded and quantized). The middle track is the combined audio.

Is this for ALL of your MIDI tracks or just that one? Can you look at the MIDI notes as you're recording them to see?

Do you have any plug-ins on the Master Fader? Do you have any value in the Global MIDI offset preference?

Brad, It seems to happen to all midi tracks as im recording them.

Digi, I dont have any plug ins on the master (or any fader) and the Global MIDI offset is 0.

Your hardware buffer setting may be too high when recording midi. This means that you need to play notes early to sound on time with the metronome track. Try recording midi with hardware buffer settings of 256 or lower.

Default Re: Midi is played on time but midi notes are early on play back.

I’*m pretty sure that the midi is recorded earlier because we play earlier because of the audio latency during the recording. For example if i here the sound with a 256 sample latency, I will automaticaly play a little earlier, to compensate that latency.
It’s the same when I play on a acoustic piano, I play a few millisecond earlier to have the sound coming at the right time. We dont do that consciensously but we all do that, more or less.
I suppose that DAW like Cubase or Logic compensate this and put the Midi later, so we ear exactly the same result after the recording pass that during the recording pass.
If this is correct, I would like that Pro Tools act the same.

I will try to put a delay of the exact amount of buffer for example 256 Samples, and see if it solves the problem.

Default Re: Midi is played on time but midi notes are early on play back.

I confirme the «*early midi notes*» problem is because I play my keyboard a little bit earlier to ear the sound at the good place, when i’m tracking.
So the Midi notes are recorded early in the grid, as Protools receive it during the recording pass.

I note that the problem only concerns VST instruments and not external midi keyboard because these last has the same amount of audio latency during or after the record pass.

Adding MIDI OFFSET in preferences or MIDI DELAY in realtime propreties are not good solution , firstly because it make QUANTIZING unpraticable.

The solution i’ve found is moving manually the midi notes with the NUDGE Of the same value of my system buffer size. I first set the Nudge at the desired value. ( it can be done on the main Edit Window or Midi edit window or both )
After the rec pass, I select the midi clip and press + on my keyboard.

IT S THE ONLY WAY TO HEAR THE EXACT SAME THING DURING AND AFTER THE PASS.
I have to be very carefull if I do a punch In record pass, merging new notes with an already recorded and moved pass : obviously I have to move ONLY the notes of the very last pass, because I dont want to Move the same notes a second time.

QUESTION : how it works on other DAW like Cubase and Logic ?!!
