I am using a midi keyboard to trigger the patterm mode in ultrabeat. I'm in "toggle on step 1" mode. All good until today. There is now a few second delay before ultrabeat starts up. Ideas?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1)

    hi Harri P,

     

    First the basic question.

    Did you change anything in Mainstage or Mac configuration? Is your Mac only for audio or regular use?

     

    Second question

    When you say delay before ultrabeat starts up, you mean when you start you Mainstage Concert the ultrabeat as a starts up delay, or when trigger the pattern on a keyboard?

     

     

    When play some notes on other patch (like piano) do you get that delay?

     

    You could copy/create a new ultrabeat channel strip to a new concert and see if you still get that delay.

     

    You can send me your concert to see if something´s wrong.

     

    Post your results.

    Can you post an image or send the concert?

     

    Try the copy/paste channel strip to a new concert.

    Hi Harri P,

     

    Maybe, and only maybe, this is not an Loopback/Ultrabeat issue. I´ll try to explain, in my opinion, since the Loopback has a internal clock the Ultrabeat trys to sync to that clock and start on the bar 1 os Loopback.

     

    Try to find something that make that sync in Loopback or Ultrabeat.

     

    Another thing you could try... Just put the Ultrabeat on your concert (erase Loopback) and press play (or space bar) and now try do trigger the pattern from your keyboard. Do you notice any delay?

     

    Is this the first time you use Mainstage in a live gig?

     

    Best Regards
