I am trying to find out if there is a way around this so wanted to throw it out there!!
I have just grabbed Logic Pro for Ipad (Though this is the same for any application from what I can see) and am connecting to my SC Live 4 with Ableton Link (either WiFi or Dongle > Ethernet).
When I sync up the tracks there is a couple of millisecond delay between the different audio signals.
I guess that, because I am incoming via AUX, that this is latency introduced in the audio processing on the unit. My question is whether anyone has solved this themselves?
If there was a Cue on the Aux in it would assist (you could jog the playing track) or you could possibly set an offset value on the device (in software on the prime unit) but neither of those solutions are available…
So - does anyone have any other ideas? OR - is the issue still the same with the Mic input (I have not tried routing the audio to the mic input as I do not have an amp to boost the signal!)
I als orun ocassionally Akai force via USB with Xone 96 (where mixer acts as a USB audio interface for Akai force) and then it is routed to AUX of the SC Live 4 or SC Live 4 is routed to Xone 96 (depends on the situation). Never skipped a beat…
I’ve had this since day one of Ableton Link being launched. It’s about a quarter of a turn to bring the jog wheel in-line with the audio.
I have a few milliseconds of delay and there’s no offset option on the Prime hardware. The culprit, I believe, is the iPad. The router could also be the issue but I’m sure it’s the iPad. I use it with Mixvibes Remixlive.
I’ve tried a laptop syncing Serato DJ to the Prime 4 and it seemed okay so assumed it was the iPad.
