I hope someone can help me, as I am getting super frustrated.
I just got myself a used Virus TI2 Desktop, love love love the sound of it!!
Not really tempted to even try using any TI functionality on my Catalina Mac, so I hooked it up with a good old MIDI cable and the analog outs into my Interface (Apogee Element24 and a Midiface 2x2).
Unfortunately, the timing is so off that I basically can not use it. Here are some examples:
First, i just fired up the INIT patch, to see if it has something to do with sound complexity. This is a monophonic 16th phrase, single notes coming from Ableton Live into the Bank C INIT patch:
Look at the picture linked above, the first note is lagging behind, the second one is on the beat, and the third one is behind again, just slightly less than the first one. Is this common?
Then I switched to Logic Pro, this time playing around with a more complex patch (ROM-A 68 ODC SV):
This is even worse. I didn't even need to look at the waveform or have a metronome playing, it just sounds extremely sloppy.
Pretty sad, since, as I said I am in love with the sound, but if the thing can't even reliably play simple MIDI the oldschool way, I really don't know what I would do with it?
Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong here? I mean, if it was this bad for everyone I am sure this thing wouldn't be so popular...
Can anyone help me out here?
