I've got an audio file and the (multichannel) MIDI file that I used to create it. All I'm trying to do is play both of them in sync in Max, but they keep falling out. No loops, no external devices, no frills; just sync. Should be relatively simple, right?
I've spent quite a while mucking with changing the playback speed (via weird messages to detonate), as well as changing the rate of the audio playback, but there doesn't seem to be a 'sweet spot'. No matter what, they always fall out of sync after a minute or so.
I'm not sure where to start approaching this... As for specific questions:
1. Should I instead be using some kind of click track / transport?
2. Should I be changing the speed of the midi to sync with the audio, or vice versa?
3. Anywhere I can read up on this type of thing? Can't seem to find anything as straightforward as this on the forum.
I'm on a new MacBook Pro (core 2 duo 2.53 GHz, 4gb ram), in case it helps.
