Default Re: MIDI Record Weirdness...Delayed & Scrambled (!@#$%^&*>?)

I had some similar issues a while back.

After runing numerous tests, and having some other people run the same tests, the conclusion I came to is:

Modern computers process audio way faster than midi. Audio processing has come a long way over the years, while midi is still 25-30 year old technology.

So if you run midi from a module into a computer, the midi notes will be slightly behind the audio.

If you use the midi in the computer to trigger sound from the module, there will be a slight delay in the final audio you hear.

If you do both in a two step process, you end up with a longer delay.

It's just inherit in the process.

However, it's easy enough to shift the midi forward to compensation for the delay.
