More Accurate Midi, please help if you can!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Discussion in 'Recording' started by manchuriarecords, Jul 11, 2004.

  1. I have fruity Loops 4, and a midi keyboard named, Studio logic cmk 161, along with a yamaha ux16 1x1 usb midi interface. I heard midi had a delay but, wow! I can't play my music the way I want to because, when I try to play it on the keyboard if I play too fast it cannot pick up what I am trying to do accurately, I tried adjusting the buffer, and it worked to some degree, but, If I turn that down too low, the music sounds distorted, is there any way for me to get more accurate midi?

    The problem is called latency, and is created by your soundcard, not your MIDI interface. What soundcard do you use? You may need to buy a new one.

    You're going to have to buy a new soundcard with ASIO drivers in order to get better latency performance. If this is an option, I can make a reccomendation.

    whats a good sound card?

    and by the way, I am currently using a cheap yamah ux 16 midi interface. But for my microphone I have a Tascam US122 interface, which has midi in and out, and it has latency adjustments, if I hooked a midi cable up to it, do you think it would be more accurate?
