MPD32 Note Repeat Out of Sync

Post by Grimulus » Sat Oct 01, 2011 4:44 pm

Setup:

Ableton Live 8
MPD32 connected via USB
Macbook Pro (Early 2011) (No, I'm not using it's internal speakers. :P )

I'm trying to figure out the correct setup to get the note repeat function to be in time. I've read the forums and tried some suggestions, but I'm not having any luck. I can't imagine it being that difficult, but maybe it is.

Any suggestions with the setup of the software or device?

Thanks so much!

I saw that thread on my Google travels, and it doesn't help at all.

Maybe you need to adjust the sync delay under MIDI preferences?

Edit:
-In ableton preferences go to the midi window MPD output and hit the dropdown arrow. You need to alter the delay sync otherwise it works like two records that are in time but not together (galloping horses). (useful to use the metronome) also found it handy to have a midi track of about 1 bar recording, hold down a sound coming out of drum rack, set MPD to 1/4 and adjust the delay untill you can see that the notes get laid down exactly on the right spot when recording.
