Does anyone use LIVE to play virtual synths in realtime?
After 2 weeks or absolute troubleshooting hell trying to find out why all my realtime musical performances using Collision and sampler are out of time, I discovered ableton's MIDI brief, where they describe inducing latency to MIDI in order to avoid jitter. In a test where I recorded MIDI from a percussion controller along with in-the-room audio of of the same performance, I discovered that the recorded MIDI notes fell 30 ms AFTER the audio recording of the same hits. Viola, there's the problem. My conclusion: not possible to use LIVE to perform real-time music using virtual synths. Not because of audio latency, because of MIDI latency.
To make a comparison, I installed REAPER, where I found no such problems.
All drivers, firmwware, etc up to date. All the recommended Windows tweaks for DAW use.
Does anyone play of record virtual synths in realtime, using live 8 or 9, and NOT have the MIDi latency that ableton writes into the LIVE code?
Thanks I appreciate your input,
