Hey folks, I’m trying to make house music with my Pyramid and Reaper and I feel like I’m fighting MIDI clock jitter half the time.
If I set the Pyramid to sync to Reaper, the Pyramid drifts forwards and backwards by ~5ms trying to stay in sync (and on the Pyramid screen I can see that the BPM shifts by +/- 0.2 BPM over time).
If I record without sync, there is no jitter at all.
If I set Reaper to sync to the Pyramid, Reaper will always jump to the start of the track when I press Play on the Pyramid, so I can’t do any punch-in recordings partway through the track.
At this point I can see two workarounds:
- Record all new material at the very start of the project in Reaper and manually slide it into place afterwards (so no punch-in).
- Disable sync completely and manually move the source material around in Reaper until it’s in sync.
Both of these are sorta rubbish. Can anyone out there recommend something I haven’t thought of? (Or commiserate? )
