Luckily, for recording purposes, it's relatively easy to quantise recorded audio after the fact.
Or to use softsynths...
That said, has anyone tested whether triggering softsynths really IS sample-accurate, in the way that is claimed...?
Messing around I noticed that playing Halion SE from MIDI in Cubase 6.05 (routing to a group and then to an audio track) that the audio track was CONSISTENTLY early by one or two samples compared to the MIDI track. I tried it 10 times, and each time the Audio started either 1 or 2 samples before the MIDI. It was a square-wavish looking audio onset, so I don't think it was a matter of having to decide when the audio actually started like it is sometimes.
Does that count as "sample accurate"?
