  • TD-8 time delay in cakewalk

    I have been doing some recording at home using the TD-8 module and recording with Cakewalk pro audio 9. When I am playing to the track using a click it feels good and in the groove. When I go to listen back the timing feels odd. It seems behind a bit. I have been sliding the entire track forward about 3 or 4 ticks which seems to help tremendously. Is this time delay something that is inherant to triggering and midi? When I lay it down as straight audio the timing feels normal but I like to put it in in midi to have more control.
    This is sure a great site. It's great to share info. Thats what life is all about. I appreciate any feedback.
    Happy Holidays!!!!!!!!!!!

    Perhaps. The symptoms you describe remind me of past discussion. Almighty SEARCH Engine is at your beckon call. Try keyword "latency".

    Good Luck,

      Thanks for the reply Marc. I just got started not to long ago. Huge learning curve for sure. I believe my question is answered. There is latency when triggering in midi,and if I understand correctly this is caused at the computer handling the midi??
      thanks again for the direction.

        Correct. Check out the Steinberg Midex 8 (which I just purchased). Midi is handled by the unit (DSP) and the signals are sent out timing compensated to correct sync across all. Pretty cool. One of the reasons I went with a Cubase system (vs. Logic, etc.) was because of how well the Midex 8 deals with this and was only able to test it out on a Cubase system. (I haven't tried it with other sequencing software, but worked flawlessly with the Cubase system I tested on.) I will be getting Cakewalk Pro Audio 9 (comes free bundled with my Aardvark Q-10), so I will soon know how Cake works with the Midex 8. I suspect the latency issue will be eliminated there just as well as advertised, but will let you know for sure if you are interested.

          Allow me to correct myself. The Midex 8 technology only corrects the latency issue (properly) with the Cubase products. With everything else it functions as an excellent midi patchbay only.

          I'm not sure who makes the Unitor 8, I'd have to check (maybe Emagic or an affiliate) but it does essentially the same thing, onboard latency correction, but I am led to believe is compatible with Cake. Hope that helps.
