I'm not sure how helpful this is but one this I so is simple start my recording
at measure 3 to give myself 8 beats up front. In earlier versions of Muse the
precount was not working right- there song position errors related midi clock
sync. Also, with jack/muse- not sure who, there is a nasty habit of throwing
noise into a recording when it starts to roll. I initially thought that was
because of too high a latency but I'm on laptop with a 1.8Ghz AMD Turion x64
dual running at 220.127.116.11-rt15 with 4.35ms latency and I still have that
problem. Another thing was that at measure one something was being sent to my
sound modules that was switching patches on me even when I turned sysex off on
them. I think was was another funky thing 'bout not being able to turn that off
in Muse once you set it to something. I'm not sure if that is the case now but
I digress- the trick again, is to start recording at measure 3, adjust your loop
point if you're using them, position your song pointer at measure one, turn on
the click and there you have 8 beats for nothing of 4/4 time up front for you to
Also, if I'm reading Atte's email right, the volume of the "audio beep"
metronome is too low. That appears to be linked to audio "Out" channel (track)
so you have to adjust it there. I prefer the audio beep to midi as well
since these days not all drum are mapped the same (Roland... err, GM) way.
