Re: Sync drift with EDP. Causes? Solutions?

Wait, I've been mostly ignoring this thread (Not owning an EDP) but I've had sync problems when using drum machines and Ableton when they are set to loop.  Something about the start message they do at the beginning of the loop screws things up.  If you let them free run and just make very long sequences you avoid this.

I'm not necessarily a gnarled MIDI veteran, but I've seen enough devices send out wonky clocks (and other MIDI messages) that I wouldn't have such a hard time imagining it.  Still, if you're seeing the same behavior with *either* Live or the DD55, the problem may lie elsewhere.

Consistent with Per's response, when you send out the clock from Live, is Live the true sync master at that point, or is Live actually slaved to the drum machine?

Sorry, I meant to imply the clock source was either the drum machine or Ableton, not both at the same time. I cant imagine the clock would be unstable. It runs the internal sequencer fine.
Im stumped.

Maybe there's a hint in this:

The Midi out of the Drum machine/Ableton is connected to the midi in of the EDP

Are both the drum machine and Ableton sending separate but simultaneous MIDI clocks?  Seems like this could easily confuse the EDP.

There's also the real possibility that the clock coming from the drum machine is unstable.  That could be the case for Live also, but I'd trust Per to tell us if he has any experience with an unstable clock coming out of Live?
