How to Get Rid of Metronome Delay in Mixcraft
Often, when you record MIDI into the computer and you have the metronome on, you have a situation where the sound is recorded behind the beat. This is different from the latency you hear with the keyboard. You can fix keyboard latency by lowering the buffer size and lowering the sample rate. What I’m talking about here is when you have very little latency, but your music is still behind the beat – consistently. What is happening, at least in Mixcraft, is that it takes too long for the computer to process the metronome sound. For instance, let’s say that the metronome sound is 25 megabytes. Well, it might take the computer a tenth of a second to process the 25 megabyte sound. As a result, you hear the “tick” a tenth of a second later. Therefore, even if you are playing exactly with the metronome, all of your music will be recorded a tenth of a second behind the actual real time. This tutorial teaches you how to convert the original metronome sound from a WAV to an MP3 file so that it cuts down on the amount of time the computer takes to process the metronome sound.
