There will always be some quantisation. If you work it out at default in Cubase prefs the ppqn is set at 4096pulses per quarter note. You could try increasing this and see if that makes any difference to the note placement you're getting.SteadyEddie wrote:Hmmm, interesting. 120 BPM, then 1/32 = 15 msec. 60 BPM, then 1/32 = 30 msec. I have no explanation for the time difference being related to BPM. Just for sanity's sake, no MIDI Quantization, correct?LeVzi wrote:I think it's #2, that the MIDI notes get printed early. And they are out by 1/32th exactly no matter what the tempo (Thump test) when I record a set of MIDI notes, if I group them all up then shift literally 1/32th later, it aligns perfectly (Within human tolerances) on the beat.
FYI, to see the actual msecs, you can zoom in with the cursor and see the actual time in the transport bar.
Quantise off is what I'd call "incoherent" quantise where the timing could be arbitrary and quantise on is where it should be more coherent.
4096 x 1 bar at 120bpm (ie: two seconds per bar of 4/4) = 8192 pulses per second. ie: 8192ms.
So without making too much of it you could see if that has any bearing on your own calculations. And I hope my math is right.
