    Hi? I've been trying to solve this problem for long enough and I'm close to giving up. Here goes.... I am trying to sync my Akai MPC 2000 XL, my keyboard, and Nuendo through midi( MTC at 30 fps and midi clock). My aim is to record one track at a time on Nuendo, record one track( like a kick drum) then go back and record another( like a snare) so they all are on seperate tracks. I have no aftermarket midi device, just my ST Audio DSP 2000 C-Port which has one midi in and 2 midi outs, this is what I use to try and sync. The problem is through the many months of trying drivers, tweaking my OS to death, upgrading, using the latest drivers, etc etc, I still can not get my final product to sync perfectly and sound like the original track. I have tried the orignal Win 2k drivers for the C-port all the way to the beta 7 r3 drivers and all in between. Problem still unsolved. I have my buffers as high as they can go and I still lose sync and get occasional pops/clicks. I have tried Win 2k pro and Win XP pro and I can't find a setup that does what I need. Is it me? Is it the C-Port? Is it the drivers? Is it Nuendo? What is it? I need help asap b/c i have sessions to run and albums to produce and if this problem isn't solved soon ST Audio and Steinberg will be losing a dedicated customer. THX

    My Setup is as follows:
    OS- Win 2k Pro or Win XP pro
    Processor- AMD Athlon 700 mhz
    Ram- 768 mb ram
    Harddrive- System- 9 gig Audio- 80 gig
    Nuendo version 1.52
    Motherboard- Giga-Byte GA 7IXE
    Graphics card- Nvidia GeForce 2 GTS
    ST Audio DSP 2000 C-Port

    I'm not sure that it's anything you are doing wrong...It could be your Midi port's driver..buy yourself a MidiMan 2x2 USB Sport and see if that helps out at all..they're not that expensive anyways! Try it out and see if that helps your problem. Sometimes working yourself so hard on a problem like this makes you blind to the end results..which is faulty hardware or drivers for the hardware...

    dood.....try striping smpte onto a nuendo track [make sure the track starts at least 10-15 secs in].........let nuendo's midi sequences fire realtime or if latency is too much of a sync problem w/ the mpc-dump all midi sequences into the mpc.............then let the mpc slave to smpte on nuendo ÷>ø can i collect the million dollars now? øçø

    That's true....create a track in Nuendo and Insert the SMPTE Generator. Direct it to an audio out not being used and voila!
    Actually did that with an RME card going to an Apogee DA-16 to a vintage analog board whose name I never sought to ask with some Flying Fader program thang which syncs to SMPTE! It was wonderfull I tell you ..... :p
