Can multiple midi interfaces cause sync issues?
      06/09/11 10:31 PM
Okay, posted this in Mac column but not sure if it was the right place

Is it possible that Mac experiences midi sync issues when having multiple midi interfaces connected?

Friend of mine has a protools setup and is of the opinion that if he doesn't use the midi port from the same interface as the audio interface (ie he uses the midi port on the protools 001) he gets sync issues...

I have also had issues with my Prophet 08 and access virus appeggiator syncing, as I use a seperate motu micro express Midi interface to my presonus sound card

Has anyone else encountered this issue?
Is there a around?


Mac OSX 10.4 2.4 GHZ dual core duo intel
Cubase studio 4
Presonus firebox
Motu micro express

P.S. Been a while since I posted, what happened to the vintage gear column?
