MTC Sync with ProTools following, using external clock. Still a lag on playback.


Recommended Posts

I am trying to use Logic as my sequencer with ProTools for hosting video and mix.  Pretty standard composer setup.

For years I have been trying to figure out how to get around the 1-2 second lag in starting playback when ProTools chases Logic.  (The playhead positions when stopped (MMC) are instantaneous.)

I have 2 separate computers, 2 separate audio interfaces, MTC over a hardware MIDI connection, and a separate external hardware word clock sending to everything.

I have been scratching my head - is there some setting in Logic or PT that I'm missing?  How are people able to make this work?  Do people use LTC with even more external hardware?
