Is there a way to nudge the actual clips on individual tracks according to a preset amount of samples or miliseconds?
"Track delay" doesn't work for me (because it affects the click and everything else, thus keeping things out of sync. Track delay would only work after the fact in this case, something i cannot do while audio is already playing.)
"Loop Start" doesn't work for me (because it cannot be set in samples, only bars/beats/16ths)
The current workaround for me is to have two click tracks:
One for Midi, and one for audio. The one for Midi is delayed by the amount of samples equaling the audio latency. Goes without saying that this is definitely not an ideal scenario, though it works.
I also posted this as a feature request:
"Early on I was trying to remedy latency woes by using Live's track delay, which can be set to negative values. Alas, this only delays everything else by the set pre-delay value.
A way to accomplish actual pre-delay, would be for Live to nudge the recorded clip into place (by the specified predelay value) as soon as the clip has finished recording.
Solution for concern of overlap: If the recorded clip is to play back immediately, it will have to start as many samples into the clip as it has been pre-delayed by.
(I wish I was good at creating illustrative graphics, because there's an easier way to explains this visually).
If this was implemented into Live, it would make syncing-up-while-playing-along a breeze. (Currently, I have to sync to Live's click-track in my ears an play "ahead" of what's playing. A real headache).
Could this possibly be solved with Max/MSP & Live8?
