MIDI Sync Delay

Post by beatpoet » Fri May 18, 2007 7:42 am

Trying to sync a mac and a PC over MIDI for a live set, having a few problems working out the midi sync delay.


The setup is

MASTER mac > ultralite MIDI out

SLAVE 1814 MIDI in > PC laptop


The problem is we are getting a noticeable delay, we measured this by playing a 4/4 MIDI track out of the mac and recording it on the pc, the first hit is perfectly in time then the subsequent hits in the bar have about a 18.4ms delay. Great we thought, but even when we added or subtracted this in the MIDI sync delay for the MIDI output on the MASTER, it made no difference at all to the recorded MIDI track when we recorded.


Seem to me like we are doing everything right, is this an issue with lives timing and are there any workarounds ?
