Syncing a TB-3 to Ableton


when I sync the Roland TB3 to Ableton the MIDI timing is a bit imprecise and wonky.

Sometimes it is a bit to early, sometimes a bit to late.

Only when I have the arm-button activated it runs perfect.

Any ideas how to solve this?

Thanks, Chris

    This is probably caused by the latency of your live sets, which can be bypassed on armed tracks by the "reduced latency when monitoring" option. 

    This is explained further in this article:

    Hope it helps,
