Playback Cursor Seems Off

Post by Just_Justin » Tue Apr 30, 2019 2:06 am

Hey,

I'm noticing that some notes in my track are hitting after the playback cursor has passed them. The track sounds fine but visually it's pretty annoying. Any suggestions on how to fix?

Thanks in advance.

That's highly likely that your having a plugin introducing a generous amount of latency. Latency is not visually compensated in Live.

Any idea on how to sniff out the source?

Hover over each plugin's device view down in the plugin area - its latency will show at the bottom-left of the screen.
