hmm .. just bought the evolution MK-225C
now I'm just experimenting with it with music software to get to learn the machine
later on the VJ part will come
(and offcourse the review)
so .. did anyone used it allready
the first shitty thing I discovered is a delay between the keybord and my laptop
(any hints - tips on this)
maybe its because its cannected through USB ?? who knows

OK maybe you could have told us what this unit actually is first????
its a midi keyboard with knobs and stuff :)
Look VERY nice

did anybody also have a delay problem using
MIDIgear with USBconnection ??
if so .. is there a solution for it

are you on a mac?
I've heard lots of tales of usb latency problems on the mac, PC users seem much luckier with usb midi - i've had no problems using usb midi gear on a pc (oxygen 8 + roland UM1 + Midiman usb midisport)
all my mates who make music on mac desktops are using old serial midi interfaces (they plug into the modem slot) which are much more reliable and faster than usb - not much use on a powerbook though
i think that some of these usb issues have been addressed in OSX not that thats any use to people running max based apps

I use a PC .. cause I've gor no money for a mac ;-)

what software are you getting latency in?
it could be coming from the usb buss or from the software your using taking a long time to respond to the incoming midi events.

to check which one it is I would try using midiOX..... :)
18th July 2002, 06:40 AM
right now I'm testing it with flowmotion and reason
and in both programs there's a delay of about a half second (or longer)
I downloaded midiOX, but what can you do with it ??
I'll check it out when I'm home from work .. and I have my midigear near me

You can monitor you incoming midi signals... then you can see if the lag is b4 it hits the PC or from the software :)

will test it tonight
I'll keep you updated
and thanx ..
