Hi, I have been having an issue where scaler starts a beat behind in logic. The sync is working and loops correctly but scaler is a beat late every time. I cannot figure out why and have never had this problem. I didn’t update anything. Is there some kind of setting I am missing?
HI @adamhain Welcome to the forum, any chance you can post a link to a video which shows what’s is happening?
Hi @adamhain and welcome to the forum.
Would you be able to share some more information please.
Do you have performances enabled? Does this only happen with DAW sync enabled etc etc. Any specific steps we can follow to recreate the issue you are having will help us greatly.
Thank you so much. Here is a link to a quick video I took with my phone. As you can hear the loop starts one beat late every time.
This happens with performances enabled or not and also with DAW sync off and on. I have used scaler quite a bit and never seen this. I can also post pictures of my settings.
To follow up here are a few screenshots of my settings.
This has been happening in all my sessions and in all instances of the plugin. I tried reinstalling scaler but it did not help.
Would you please try enabling “Play Quantize” in the settings menu and see if this makes a difference to your performances?
Using the example in your video if you could.
Let me know what results you get
Hello, thanks! I followed the picture and just tried that but it didn’t make a difference.
Does your project happen to start before the first downbeat?
As in the screenshot below.
DAW Sync doesn’t grab a hold until the first downbeat so projects that have their project start marker before bar 1 will find that Scaler DAW sync won’t kick in until the start of bar 1.
That’s the only way I can reproduce your issue currently.
Are you also able to confirm that this is affecting all of your projects? Including a new blank project?
Thank you. Yes, I have the session starting at bar 1. I did try a blank session in logic with just one track and the problem went away! However all my projects begin with a template and it appears to be happening in all of these.
This is odd though because I did not ever have this problem before with the same template…I cant think of a project setting in logic that might be causing it…
Actually I think I may have an answer! I can recreate the problem by turning off low latency mode in logic. So when I turn on low latency the problem goes away and when I turn it off it comes back. I will test further and report back!
Can you try turning off Open GL and see if that helps?
Thank you for sharing this! I will try it. But I haven’t been having the issue as much. Though it does happen here and there. I have been solving it by toggling low latency monitoring. Oddly the position doesn’t seem to matter. If it happens to be off or on toggling fixes it…
