USAMO not always in sync when pressing play

Post by GZHN27 » Thu Jan 16, 2020 5:07 am

My Usamo is setup properly and works like it should, no Jitter, sends midi clock en midi notes without any problems or dropouts. Very Happy with it because i've been struggling with USB midi jitter for a while.

There is only 1 problem left. When I press play in Ableton, my hardware is not always in sync with the Ableton clock. Sometimes I have to press play stop a couple of times till it starts on the right time and sometimes it's spot on on the first click. Does this have to do with USAMO settings? Or is this a Ableton problem?

When does it start? A little bit off, or a full bar off?

A little bit but it's noticable off sync. And it's different everytime. Its very random. With a bit of luck it's in sync on the first press..

Are you passing the plug-in output through Live's External Audio Effect to adjust the offset?

Have you enabled the 'delay start slice' button on the plug-in?

Yes I'm passing the Usamo output through the External Audio FX device. The offset setting on the external audio fx device is not really the right way to fix this I think because the Usamo starts randomly, not on the same spot everytime.

The "delay start slice" button I have to check. Can't remember seeing this option somewhere. I will check it out. What does it doe exactly?

Okey the delay start function seems to make it better but not perfect. But I don't mind, the Usamo already fixed 90% of my hardware/software problems i've been encountering for years.. :hail:
