I'm running logic 9 64bit in snow leopard on a mac pro 2.3 nehalem dual quad w 14 gigs ram. (which I'm still paying off) I have a MOTU express 128, a pile of dusty analog things and NI's Maschine running as per NI's support team's advice, in stand alone slaved to logic via midi clock through IAC 1. The problem is that I cant seem to get everything synched up right. I tried listening to the click outs from logic and maschine and beatmatching w the midi out offset in logic's preferences. That works for the instant I get it 'on' but then when I press stop and play again, it has to be readjusted. Seems to want to be anywhere between -30 to -20ms but if its even a little off, the whole thing sounds like trash. Feels a clock signal inconsistency or something. (?) Secondly, when the Maschine is synched for the minute, the outboard synths are a lil off. Further complicating, my two Midi/CV converter systems have a slightly different latency, AND one synth (a retrofit) accepts midi note, pitch-bend and mod-wheel data but goes fruggun haywire when it hears clock or timecode. Anyone have a systematic process for getting the audio and different midi devices all synched up? I come from MPC land so you'll have to speak slowly and use small words. thanks!
