Hey, everyone -
I'm working on some tracks with the Dotcom setup right now, but I've run into a problem. I previously only really used VSTi's, which render directly to disc instead of recording in realtime, so it hasn't been an issue. But now that I'm triggering the Dotcom system over MIDI and recording the audio, it's reared its ugly head.
I know that some of you use Cubase SX, so I hope that this is one of those easy fixes that I'm just not thinking about. I've been recording a lot, and I've found that all of my recorded audio is a little bit "ahead" of the MIDI clock/MIDI notes - no real problem since all audio tracks are "ahead" by the same amount (in sync with each other), but it's become a problem when I want to excise a certain measure and copy and paste it - I'm losing the attack of the first note, which is really noticeable with kick drums.
Here's a picture of the situation -
What's going on? I figure this is a latency issue, but it seems like if anything, the audio should be late or behind, not ahead. Is Cubase trying to automatically compensate for latency or something, thus moving the audio "ahead" of the beat?
What can I do to fix this?
