My Project Mouse Move & Text Up Down have little delay

Mouse Move & Text Up Down have little delay


Looking at your project file and your snapshots, I’m a little confused at what you are trying to do.

  1. You have Ableton Live both looking at Launch Control XL for MIDI Input and BMT1. I see an error on Launch Control XL and Windows can only open one MIDI port at a time so I assume you are looking for MIDI only on BMT1 (Bome MIDI Translator Virtual Port 1)
  2. At the same time you are sending keystrokes out using the same fader as you use for sending MIDI, but only when it is the value of fader 5 is absolute value of 57H 87 decimal(no other value.) With this configuration you will move the fader on channel 5 in Ableton for all cases until it hit 57 when you will send a single text keystroke up. You have similar settings for other faders (IE text down when fader 6 hits a value of 2DH 45 Decimal ).

It should be OK to control different functions of Ableton Live with MIDI and mouse but having them overlap like this might cause some issues.

Maybe you have Ableton Live on one screen and using MIDI to control it and other applications on your primary monitor trying to control them? Also, in my experience, Physical Keys output has been more reliable than using text, although with my test text up seemed to happen with no apparent delay.

Could you clarify what you are trying to accomplish and why you are using the same faders for both Ableton Live MIDI control and mouse control?
