Author Topic: Beatstep Pro recording midi in Ableton first bar not in sync ?  (Read 44 times)

I'm using my beatsep pro as a slave to Ableton to sequence external drummachines (sds-3)  who are connected to Ableton through an external mid-interface.

I have to put -17ms midi sync clock delay in midi preferences to get it perfect in sync with ableton.

The problem is if I press play/start and record the midi from the beatstep pro into ableton  the first bar is always not in sync is this normal behaviour ?

Sombody else experience this ?

if the BSP is slave, try using the start command from Ableton not the BSP..you may need to fiddle in MIDI control centre to make it work, you may not. How is BSP connected to your computer?

MIDI can need between 5-20ms delay in Logic too depending upon how busy my track is so that's quite normal within a DAW..on an empty track I don't need to delay at all, but as soon as I start adding VSTIs etc the delay needs to be increased...MIDI is too fast for modern DAWs hehe
