Okay... so, John and I have been trading notes offline for the last couple of days. We are
both experiencing the exact same behavior with our Emagic and MOTU midi interfaces.
I have put together a video that illustrates how tight Logic can be if latencies
are accounted for. Track bug not withstanding, the results are quite good in my opinion.
It comes down to understanding how to work with Logic and what is going on with the midi
side of things.
I think part of the reason a lot of folks value older systems
is because they were not working in tandem with sample accurate virtual instruments and
audio tracks. DAWs have tight timing and higher PPQ values taking away some of the
inherent quantizing that can occur at low PPQ values.
Midi is never going to be
perfect. You can even ague "feel" when comparing an MPC to Logic (even I kind of like the
"feel" of Reason's sequencer), but, I have proven to myself that I can tighten things up
in Logic to an acceptable degree.
Take a look and let me know what you
Oh... and please forgive the crap track. I just threw this together to
demonstrate/verify my settings.
