I need a interface to just decrease midi latency...

Post by Tweaking Knobs » Mon Jan 02, 2017 1:27 am

i have a push2 and when i play it has latency...

I want some interface to just decrease midi latency, dont need to record audio...

Is there some interfsce that just helps me with midi latency ? cheap ?

is there even a software only solution ? i have already played with sample buffer settins in live but still too low..

Got a new macbook pro (new but model from 2015) and my push2...

I dont want to buy now somethng like the scarlet 2i2 now.. i just want something that helps me with latency no need to record audio.. any tips .. thx!

I might be wrong, but i'd say you should have a quite decent latency with a Macbook pro and no interface.
What's your buffer size ?
MacBook Pro 13" Retina i7 2.8 GHz OS 10.13, L10.0.1, M4L.
iMac 27" Retina i5 3,2 GHz OS 10.11.3 L10.0.1 M4L.

Bluetooth adds a lot of latency, you're right. Otherwise you should be able to go down to 256 samples with just the stock MBP soundcard, maybe even lower.

I don't know if products like these could have an impact on this issue.
"aptX® Low Latency effectively enables consumers to watch video while listening to wireless audio in a synchronised fashion. "
