Yes, It's ususally working just fine. What I meant, when I said I
don't like the way Live syncs to Mobius, is that I sometimes do
destructive loop cutting (like ending a Multiply with REcord, like I
do on the EDP as well) that abruptly changes the tempo. Quite often
when I did that, Live lost sync. And since I don't like watching the
laptop screen when playing I only discover it after some seconds when
the music starts to sound sea-sick ;-) My old Repeater was a very
trusty Sync Slave, it even sounded good when failing.

As long as the tempo stays the same it use to work just fine. But
many music applications sound better when not synced so I actually
quite often simply put a second computer to the same tempo and start
recording without any sync between the two machines. Then I match the
timing for the new recording by ear to have it fit in with the big

If MIDI is sent through ethernet doesn't help if the applications
cant detect MIDI clock, or MTC or whatever....
