    thanks matey : )

    between your advice and page 90 of the Mnm(Mk1)‘s man­ual (“MONOMACHINE AND MIDI” — think it’s on page 91 in the MK2’s man­ual, “TEMPO SYNC”), I got this working.

    Thank you

    Admit­tedly, I’ve now for­got­ten how I did it (have been busy at school last few months). But i’ll re-do it and take notes (for myself).

    PS. and the other good ref­er­ence was the fol­low­ing part in Ableton’s (Live 8) ref­er­ence manual:

    “Syn­chro­niza­tion and ReWire” chap­ter 29 of the Able­ton ref­er­ence man­ual, in par­tic­u­lar, “29.1.1 Syn­chro­niz­ing Exter­nal MIDI Devices to Live”… page 495 in Live 8’s manual

    Thanks for post­ing this up!

    If you have added any new thoughts to this great piece of infor­ma­tion please post.

    I have been pulling my hair out try­ing to get this stuff sorted for a very long time, it became so frus­trat­ing I stopped pro­duc­ing for some time now :(

    My sound­card is in get­ting fixed, I cant wait to try and get this sorted, I hope I don’t have to go down the path of spend­ing big bucks on a sync-lock device and a midi merger!

    If you have any able­ton tem­plates you want to share for MD and MnM set please post.

    Cheers again!

    Any one who hasn’t fig­ured this out yet, on Machine Drum at least you need to have BOTH ‘Tempo In’(set to ‘exter­nal’) AND ‘Cntrl In’ (set to ‘on’) Then, and only then will Machine Drum lock to Able­ton (or any other DAW I imagine)

    Cntrl is irrel­e­vant of the sync issue, it just sets up how machine­drum responds to start and stop or midi mes­sages, I still have the same prob­lem regard­less of how Cntrl is set up.

    All you have to do to fix sce­nario one is enable strict delay compensation.

    Go to AppData\Roaming\Ableton\Live 8.2\Preferences

    and cre­ate a text file called Options.txt

    put this in it: –StrictDelayCompensation

    All done. No more tim­ing mess when tracks are armed or not.

    Mate, I feel your pain — I have an Elek­tron
    OT and have the same clock­ing issues, been trawl­ing the web for a solu­tion as it really lim­its the poten­tial of the OT and kind of negates the whole rea­son for hav­ing it. Only thing I have come across other than lots of clock­ing idiots who don’t seem to under­stand the fun­da­men­tal prob­lem is the Inner Sys­tems stuff — that looks like it will work but it’s not cheap
