I recently purchased an MC3 and right now I’m using it to record loops with an Octatrack. However, I’m having an issue with latency. I’ll explain.
I have MC3 set up so that switch [A-press] will control the record function of the looper and [A-double tap] will allow me to select the previous track. Switch [B] is set up in a similar way. When using the press functions on switch [A] or [B] there is a pretty significant amount of latency, even with looper mode engaged.
The problem as far as I can tell is that, since I have switches [A] and [B] set up with a double tap function, MC3 is introducing this latency because it’s waiting for a possible double tap.
I tried switching out the double taps on [A] and [B], using long presses instead, and this did eliminate the latency issue. However, now if I want to use [A-long press] to switch to another track, [A-press] will also be engaged and recording begins, which I do not want. This happens even if looper mode is not engaged.
Am I right about this double tap latency? Is there any way around this? Is there some way for me to modify looper mode so that it doesn’t wait for a double tap?
Really appreciate any help you can give me!
