Syncing Ableton Live via Midi
I would like to sync Ableton running in separate computers using midi clock. I am by no means a master of midi and clock timing.
I have got it to work before using both Mac to Mac, and Mac to PC with the Mac or PC set to master. My problem is getting a stable sync. I know i need to add delay compensation to allow for latency but the issue i have is nothing to do with that. When i sync the two copies of ableton you can actually see the slave midi clock seesaw around the desired BPM.
for example if i set it to 120BPM then the slave will be hovering somewhere around 119-121BPM.
I have tried with various Midi interfaces including:
RME FireFace 800, Moto 828Mk2, Novation Remote SL61.
If i set the Novation Remote SL as the Master clock then BOTH machines running ableton will sync perfectly to the midi clock/bpm.
Any ideas (other than just using the novation :P)?
