no..its wobbely regardless how good the external clock is.. abletons own clock out is pretty good aswell thats not the problem..anybody human wrote:This is my question also. Shouldn't an external clock do the trick?Pitch Black wrote:Have you guys tried using a common MIDI clock-master, and both instances of Live working as slaves? Such as a hardware drum mach, groovebox, master-keyboard clock, etc
That always worked well enough for me. Hows it been in your experience?
Sorry if this has been answered, I'll go back and read the intervening 10 pages now
the only advantage from external clocking of two ableton instances is that they booth wobbel than and sound better together this way than having one that runs straight with one that is wobbeling around..
how much the wobbeling is destructiv depends on the users sensebility and music style.
In any case abletons performance is not the worse on the market, but it is far away from beeing good.
Native instruments reaktor is much better here for example and as said before the real refference here are hardware drummachines and sequencers like the mpc because ableton jumped in the ring to replace theese little buggers on stage..
And therfore the reffernce standard is high and not easy to match.. but with actual computers especially on os x this should be possible. At least it should be possible to get way better than it is now.. Of cause with some thinking and programming effort.
But i think ableton should be the market leader in that diziplin and not just as bad as the others.
Serato bridge ..to get back on topic.. shows that they can improove syncing questions when they want to.
Its just more important to have solid operation for dj´s than allowing ableton acts to sync with each other like that..
And that is what i critizse with that relase.. that the serato sync came first..
#But that is past now..
At least the serato sync should lead to a better inter applikation syncing for live users in the next releases.
Not another 8 years please !!!
