Spark VDM - Ableton Live Sync Problems
« on: March 16, 2012, 04:23:51 pm »
I am having a problem with SPark VDM not being in sync when added as a VST to my projects. I am in communication with Arturia Support who tell me i'm the only person that is affected.

Could the board please advise this topic if they are having any sync issues when adding Spark VDM to ableton Live Projects.

FYI - only seems to happen when adding to a project already populated with objects etc. removing the immediate track from above Spark seems to solve the issue (regardless of what it is)

Any Sync related problems at all Re Spark VDM and Ableton please report here.

obviously this is when Host sync and Tempo and highlighted

We have been able to reproduce this issue, with Spark but also with other plugs that use internal sequencer.

This happens when the Input monitoring is set to 'ON' while the track is armed for recording.
Live seems to add some delay compensation when the track is set to recording and have input monitoring on.

Workarounds are:
  - Turn monitor to off on Spark track
  - Set 'no input' as option in the 'Midi from' combo box on Spark track
 - Disable the 'arm session recording' switch on Spark Track
