Roland TR606 & TB 303 as a slave Cubase SX as the master

MY REPLY
When I record the 606 or 303 into cubase they are in time with each other, and seem themselves intime but when it comes to the looping part it jumps and is not perfectly in time. Would you know how to sort this out?

My sequencer is cubase SX
I am using the midi clock out setting to control a Roland drum machine and a roland tb 303 bass line via a philip rees mds.
The two are not exact and need to fine tune the setting within cubase and must admit the control page is a bit above my head.
Please if you have any suggestions would you be able to help
Rob

How do you mean "not exact"? Does the timing drift?

what is happening is one of two things, either the unit is drifiting in and out of time, or it is playing too slow for the loop so in the recording say if I record a 4 bar loop at the end of the final bar is the start of the next so when it cycles to the start it "jumps"
hope this helps.

Could it not be the "cycle" function in your sequencer glitching the midi clock...does it drift if you put a loop over 16 or 32 bars with no cycle on?
