If you have a MIDI keyboard with its own USB connection to a PC, use that for the lowest MIDI input latency. USB vs MIDI latency w/ new TD-30 sound module 08-19-13, 01:10 PM Installed the latest USB driver from Roland's site on the Dell PC laptop I've been recording w/ â¦ With the question about backwards compatibility, combined with no real benefits to round-trip latency performance, the USB 2.0 protocol is still the most efficient technology for professional multichannel recording for the channel counts our USB devices provide. I have heard talk of studio monitors and decent quality speakers, but I am wondering how they compare to older speakers that are bigger and require a tuner. Also, you can create a new Playback Configuration with another MIDI device (i.e. Latency is purely a function of the soundcard and its drivers. MIDI ports on most Firewire audio interfaces tend to be the slowest. I got a few details from Focusrite regarding their USB vs thunderbolt speeds. Also, if you are using a USB3 interface or a USB3 hard drive, and you insert the USB 2.0 cable into a shared USB bus, the speed of everything gets reduced to 2.0 speed. So while Midi Out is not a problem, Midi In is really slow. You may have to register before you can post: click the register link above to proceed. Don't need PC to make midi to stream musics. So if I interfaced with a daw like reaper with a high quality sample (such as ivory, or vintage) I could achieve the same level of quality & latency with the USB as with the 22vsl? Some cost under $100. Ploytec's Windows USB Audio driver and Mac OS X USB Audio HAL-plugin driver enable buffersizes down to 32 samples (0.73 ms) and create an ultra highspeed USB audio connection, bypassing the operating system's audio, its mixing and samplerate conversion.. There are a lot of technical differences between a USB and Thunderbolt interface. USB is not the issue - there is no bottleneck. The difference in terms of latency seems minimal to me between the two and there is a big difference in price here in the UK. And like the previous guy said, it has to do with handshaking. I'm currently getting 3.9 ms roundtrip in Logic at 48KHz and 32 samples and 2.8ms at 96KHz at 32 samples Latency with virtual instruments and MIDI interface / keyboard. MIDI and audio should be sent out at the same time, to get 250ms late Audio you must be using plugins that introduce a lot of latency. MIDI Bluetooth USB dongle WIDI BUD zaps latency Great news for musicians with bluetooth-enabled MIDI keyboards, guitars, drum kits or other MIDI devices. If not, use the MIDI input on a PCI-based audio interface if available, and then that of a USB-based audio interface. MIDI cable length does, however, affect the quality of the MIDI signal, and in that way can have a bottom line effect on the reliability of your MIDI system. Usb sends itâs data in â¦ USB and MIDI latency/lag in FL Studio 12 Hello everyone, I have a long standing issue with PC computers when it comes to electronic music and I was hoping the PC/Mac experts out there could help me figure this out. Hi, I noticed that the Midi input latency of the MODX is quite high. Standard mode provides low-latency MIDI communication between up to four total devices. I'm guessing your latency has nothing to do with it being MIDI over USB, but rather the laptop interface, processing and MIDI-OX software. Using my actual hardware with software tweakings would be lovely but also suggestions about buying new hardware that would solve the problems (cheap, if possible :) ) is appreciated. SteveArch wrote:I've recently moved from Mac to PC and I'm having problems with MIDI latency in Ableton.Everything I record in Ableton comes in 1/16th bar late, even if using the Ableton built in keyboard. Looking more at the BomeBox - it appears you can connect class-compliant MIDI interfaces to it, so there is a way to avoid USB and still use just one BomeBox and multiple MIDI 5-pin connections. I have a reasonably new interface a universal audio Apollo twin USB. And even ASIO drivers not always help. Your input/output (I/O) channels, i.e. I use usb connection on both and I would like to have suggestions and ideas to get rid of the latency when recording. The question is - â¦ There are a lot of great answers here regarding the bandwidth and jitter differences between classic din5 MIDI and MIDI over USB direct to the instrument, so I won't belabor them. When you use one of our MIDI interfaces together with a keyboard or one of our keyboard controllers to play a virtual instrument, the delay or latency you might experience depends on the audio interface or soundcard you use for playback. In USB 2.0 the polling interval was 0.125ms, so the best possible latency for the host to read some data from the device was 0.125ms. MIDI to USB Latency Learn More â The Universal Serial Bus (or USB) has made a significant impact on technology in recent years, creating a standardized format for communication between electronic devices all across the board. Essentially, latency is a combination of three things: Your computerâs hardware specs, i.e. There is only one data path in usb, and the host controls that path, it has to poll the usb devices and ask for the data. Okay. Had a substantial lag but I clicked on whatever you call that little sound button and it was fine. - As tested app worked in background or screen turned off to practice USB MIDI Piano.
