Clyphx pro sample accurate

Post by Razzkazz » Tue Jun 04, 2019 12:28 pm

Is Clyphx Pro sample accurate?

I am having an issue whereby when I play from a clip with the code "[] sig 4/4 ; bpm 58" to the next clip with the code"[] bpm 191 ; sig 4/4 there is a slight lag on audio stabs at the beginning of the clip, when the 2nd clip starts, like it's taking a few milliseconds to get up to 191. I am using Follow actions to go from one clip to the next.

I also tried using a "WAIT" message in the previous clip, trying get add the change just before the clip plays and the timing is unpredictable, as in not always the same.

Can anyone help here?

Yes,the action lists of X-Clips, X-Cues and X-Scenes are all subject to a delay of up to 20 ms. It used to be 100 ms!

There is a Q&A video explaining how this works on the website.

Best regards
Darren

Hi Darren

thanks for the info, good to know. But is it always exactly 20ms, I guess not. When using the "WAIT" code I got varying results with the same value. I haven't noticed anything in the past, it's just there's a couple of quick stabs at the very beginning of where the change happens, so you can hear the catch up happening. I found a workaround, so not a major hassle :)

I had similar issue with M4L devices in the past sending messages at varying times, at the level of milliseconds.

Thanks

Hi, no the delay is up to 20 milliseconds, it can be much quicker than that.

Cheers
