Ableton as clock slave drift - SOLUTION

Just found this piece of information which is pretty important if you’re intending to sync Ableton as clock slave from your external gear :

I set it to “g” (for good) and it’s so much better. The initial 2 bar drift you get when set to the default is gone, and it’s actually usable.

I have DT as master, sending clock over USB and it’s working great.

Helped me out, hope it helps someone else.


Wow - never knew this existed! And it’s not listed in the overview of the options.txt.
Although my clock sync is fine since 8.2.5 (MIDIBox Seq as master), I’m keen to try out the different options with other clock sources.

Thanks a lot for sharing!
