Synching up tracks

synching on playback

I recorded a few midi tracks and audio tracks. On playback they’re out of synch. I’m using M-Audio Fastrack and M-Audio Uno (Midisport). Both are USB 1. My new Dell computer has USB 2 ports. Could this be the problem?

What MIDI Synth is selected as the output? My guess is that it’s the Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth. If so then what you are hearing is software synth latency. The MSGSWTS (don’t you love that acronym?) is one of the worst, in the 85 to 150 millisecond range.

The workarounds are to get a hardware synth, either a souncard with an onboard synth (Dell usually sells machines with an Audigy2 these days) or an external MIDI module, or use an VSTi plug-in.

This answer assumes a lot. There are many other reasons tracks can be out of sync.

Joe-kelly, I gave a suggestion to use Wave timer in your other post.

What’s a wave timer? Where can I buy/download one?

You need to read what I wrote in your other post where you asked the same question. Essentially you just need to change a few ntrack settings.
