It starts alright – but if I record anything (in the MPC sequencer that is) the MPC have interpreted my bangings on the pads into something quite weird.
Weird as in timing? Notes?
But that’s a problem local to the MPC, no?
I don’t see how the Octopus in involved in this picture.
Weird as in timing and notes. Both yes. We can leave out the Octopus-MPC connection at the moment, but it’s quite sure it’s not an MPC related issue. I have been syncing it with Cubase 4 for ages, and never experienced any problems like this.
But that’s besides the point.
What I am trying to understand at this point, is how Live users use their setup with Octopus. As I said – I use the Octopus as a slave and the computer as a master. With that setup I have to trim the sync offset to around 250 ms to get it right.
