I think I figured it out. I had the sample size set too high in Cubase (2048), which caused the timing/latency problem. I dropped it down to 960 and the MIDI sounds smoother but now crackling starts. Oh well, another problem to tackle.

Rather than connecting a usb-to-keyboard cable directly to usb port built into a laptop. If you must use the direct usb connection, try keeping it simple and play amplifying only the sound coming out of the keyboard's own audio jacks so the laptop does nothing but record midi while you play. Also pay careful attention to the laptop's power-save settings... some settings will switch to a lower cpu clock to save power. And make sure background processes like indexing are disabled. Here's an optimization guide: http://www.audioforums.com/windows-vista-optimization.php

I am using USB cables rather than MIDI to USB. Just for the record, I was not trying to use Ivory sounds while playing. I just stuck with the basic piano sound on the FP-7, then when I rendered the MIDI to mp3, I added the Ivory sounds. What are the models of the Tascam or RME items you referred to?

I was using my PC rather than a laptop, but I have 2 GB of RAM and it's a relatively new machine. Not super powered or anything, but I think enough to handle it.

I will check the optimization for the CPU, however, as I think you may be right on that. I know when I would use Ivory my CPU was almost non-stop, so perhaps there's the issue right there. Thanks!

Morodiene,

I've been using an older system with Reaper and Ivory and have not been experiencing the issues you're having. If you think it might help, I'd be willing to test out one of your Reaper projects on my computer and see if I can replicate any of the issues you're having.

I realize that since our systems aren't identical I probably wouldn't be able to isolate your problem down to a single issue but, if your Reaper project works fine on another machine, you could at least focus your attention on another area of your system. It could very well be that there's an issue within your OS or possibly an audio driver problem.

Reaper has always worked very well for me "out-of-the-box". In all the time that I've been using Reaper I've never once had to make any adjustments to the quantinization settings to get my recordings to play back properly, whether I'm playing back MIDI files on my keyboard or playing virtual instruments. Just let me know if you think that might be useful. I'd only need your ".RPP" file.
