163 - timing slack?        

From: stompee1
Email: stompee1@aol.com
Date: 21-Apr-00


people always asking about timing problems with midi....i use multiports..one connected to the printer port..2 in 4 out portman and joystick port on soundcard. this distributes the data more evenly and avoids traffic problems as commonly found with midi..

2)..filter out any unneeded controller info! whats the point in sending tons of aftertouch messages on a part that doesnt need it!

3)..use the slide functions in your sequencing software to nudge parts with slow attack times to fit the bill!

4) turn off any screensavers etc that could be taking up precious processing power especially when working with audio and midi together..

5) try not to fill up the arrangment with too many notes and avoid overlapping notes! why make your synth play more voices than necessary? when the polyphony could be put to better use thats all from me folks! e-mail me with tips too if ya like!...ballistic !
