    Hello folks,

    I just got my MIDI keyboard, finally, a Radium 61 connected via USB cable, and I'm
    completely happy with it. I'm using the latest driver from M-audio.

    However, I've encountered a strange thing when recording MIDI in
    Cubase (not in Reason, though). Once I start recording,
    the first note is in time, but the rest is pushed about one 8th-note
    triplet ahead, which means that the downbeat of the following bar as
    I played it in sync with the the metronome falls an 8th-note triplet
    before the actual downbeat.

    I can't really seem to find a solution - I've messed around with all
    settings in the Expert panel of the device multitrack manager, but
    that doesn't solve the problem. My setup is quite standard - a
    FireWire 410 soundcard being the audio interface.

    Does anyone have an idea what this is about?

    Home Page:
    In the upper portion of the main page (in Cubase), you'll find the grid for your resolution settings & some other stuff. Try going through a few of the resolution settings until you find what works for you. You can try a particular setting and if it does'nt work, do an undo and try another. Once you get it, do a save. And make sure you highlight the track your working on or open up the edit window for that track and do a "select all". Also I forgot to mention, you can go to the quantization page and make a selection there too. I try to avoid the pre-selected options for groove quantization. However, I will audition & experiment with all of the user choices, ie: straight, triplet & ect. Then follow through with the formentioned selection of the resolution. Hope this helps.

    I think this was an issue with some versions of SX if that's what you are using. Go to the cubase forum (http://forum.cubase.net/cgi-bin/cubase.net/Ultimate.cgi) and do a search. Version 2.2 of SX is due to be released soon (see details at http://www.pluginpresets.com/photo.php) which may have fixed the problem if it wasn't fixed in an earlier fix(!)

    Version 2.2 is a free maintenance update, but for SX (as opposed to SL) there are also some new VSTis and FX
