Hey guys, got an odd syncing issue, which I feel I understand but can’t help feel it shouldn’t be behaving this way.
So I tried to sync my dfam with Ableton in 2 methods.
Creating a sound source (Single square wave) and sending it to adv/clock in a 16th note pattern
Used Ableton’s CV tool utility clock out
Both work as expected, however when I stop playback and start again it starts from where it stopped and usually off by two beats so for example where a kick was on time to start Beats 1 and 5 of the 8 it’s has now been thrown off to beats 3 & 7 (usually where the hat sits on 4x4)
Having been puzzled by this, I discovered in a moog video you must stop the run/transport button and advance the sequence to the 8th beat, always before starting the the track again so as it falls roughly on the 1st down beat.
I just can’t help feel there is a more intuitive way to wire this so as I can randomly stop the track in Ableton and not have to worry about resetting the dfam sequence to beat 8 so that it starts by falling on down beat 1 and ergo, in sync???
This just seems awkward or is this normal dfam behaviour?
