Yo 'Wigs,

So I've got the clock transmitter spitting out clock ok - but is there any way to manually add a corrective delay/advance to this clock to compensate for the computer latency? It feels like the transmitter device should have a little slider or something to add/remove a few milliseconds. As it stands I've got decent clock, but need to tweak it a bit to make it in time. Will this be an added feature if I've missed it? Otherwise, any ideas how to get that clock rock solid from Bitwig?

Tried editing scripts? :)

I have had a tiny look - Will that let me do it? As in will the timing offset be a value added to the script, or will the script allow a control to be added from within Bitwig? I didn't find anything in the API doc that seemed along those lines - but it could be there!

yeah a corrective delay would be cool..i seem to have the dr660 a tiny bit off compared to the internal sequencer (but the clock seems totally solid finally!)

Any news on this? Midi clock is not stable enough as of yet and the recording offset is clearly not the answer. Corrective delay/ advance would be highly appreciated. I have tested this with both OSX and Linux and the problem is quite the same in both.

You could use the recording offset - but it may introduce unwanted side effects at other places.

Ah that should be good enough! thanks..didn't know you can do it live like in Ableton with the trackdelay

ohh..its the global audio interface offset..hrmm yeah thats a bit too global but probably gets the job done. thanks.

I have delay problems and also some midi Notes are not being played at the correct time (some ms), but not all the notes...

The clock out of BW is garbage... Add that to using a USB midi interface (if you are), and it's smelly garbage. One (not ideal, but works for me) solution has been to use the USAMO on a track, and merge just that clock into all outgoing midi so that I can at LEAST record from 4 or 5 devices at once and only have to time shift once.

the clock into BW is not working either
