To whom it may concern:
I'm fairly new to the world of midi and computer music (not to mention usergroups),and had a few questions regarding midi latency. I use a MAC running the 8.6 os, Cubase 4.1 and use a USB midi interface (midisport) using oms 2.6. When I program drums (with DMpro) in Cubase and use my ASR-10 as a trigger, upon playback, the drums play off beat and I know that my timimg is'nt that bad!!!
Whats the source of this latency? Is it my mac os, midi interface, ASR-10, drum module, cubase, or OMS? Or a combination of them all? Are their any effective means of minimizing latency within cubase or anywhere else? Maybe a midi utility or hardware?
I would'nt like to use too much quantization and would rather hear an accurate representaion of exactly how I played. Am I asking for too much or am I within reach of a solution?
P>S> As a sidebar, does anyone know if having norton anti virus and stuffit expander running in the background affect midi communication. And, what type of midi message should'nt I use while a song from the device is playing?
