"This is for the coders out there, I need some help figuring out how to get better timing with this thing.
First, there's this problem:http://neophob.com/2011/04/serial-latency-teensy-vs-arduino/
I don't know if they fixed for the Serial library rxtx v2.2pre3 or not, as the bad-timing is still there if I update the files. But, I couldn't figure out how to correctly install this update, if anyone knows, please, let me know. (I'm on Windows)
Here's the link for the RXTX Lib Update:http://neophob.com/2010/07/serial-library-rxtx-v2-2pre3/
Now, I tested with a very simple but effective test: Beat707 in MIDI Mode, USB-MIDIBOX 4x4 connected to Beat707, MidiOX connecting that to the Windows GM Synth. Timing is PERFECT, it sounds great. But as soon as I try to use the USB to MIDI converter to either MidiOX or directly to the GM Synth, its pretty strange, around 80% perfect, and yes, I can hear it, even my wife who's not a musician.
So, something is bad, and I need to figure out what... any help is much appreciated!
