HI I just Got a second hand Waldorf Q Keyboard.
In 1998 /99 I was standing in the synth store and really wanted that synth instead i bought a Nord Lead 2 because i just could not afford the Q. but now i was really lucky that i could get one it was along time on my synth Bucket List of must have for my studio ! Ok enough said . Now here's my problem . My Waldorf Q is up to date 3.02 system and Boot 1.02.
I use Logic but these days more Ableton. And i would really like to use the arp in sync from the Waldorf Q.
SO I done some testing with sending midi clock from the DAW. Still it takes long time to get Waldorf Q in sync.
Is this because the midi clock Arp off last system aint right do I have to down grade my waldorf to really sync it proper.
I have a TR 8 and basically i have no problems syncing that or my other synths with both Daw's. Is it an issue with my midi MT 4 ( e magic card ) Or do i need better midi card. I Do know how to solve latency so that is not really the isseau for me. Just getting the arp or seqeuncer to sync proper in Logic X or in Ableton live 9 . If some one can help me would be nice !!
For the rest I am really happy but want to use the max of this Beast Q. I think I ain't the only one who would like to know. Any Tips ? I did find out how to fix the problem in Ableton .

Thanx

I know this is an older thread and although I do not know about Logic or Live, (I use Reaper), I have a Yellow Q Keyboard and a yellow Q Rack and the "final O.S. 3.02" actually did some weird things to both Arp and Sequencer to where the previous O.S. 3.01 these things just work and on 3.01 the Arp and Sequencer will send midi out to other instruments, whereas 3.02 unintentionally messed that up to a degree, hence, I keep both my Q's on 3.01 and have no issues.
Hope this helps.
