but i have come closer to the problem and i realize it is not a jitter problem, it is a problem with seq. i posted the other thread in the jitter subforum, this one now goes in the max/msp subforum.
when i play back a midi track exported from pro tools with the 'seq' object the midi information is drifting out of sync with audio + video. quite a lot.
is there a way to make the seq run tighter? perhaps in with timecode from the video? or with use of the 'tick' messages triggered by a metronome?
the midi file was exported from protools with a session running 120BPM. the same behavior happens if i record the midi data with the seq object, and play it back afterwards.
