I have this same issue.

wonder if live 9.6 (released yesterday) fixes anything.

kinda difficult to use by letting it run for a few bars first, when using it for live performance.

Hello,

I have the same issue right now.
It used to work very well but now when i have my  BSP as slave (sync: USB) with Ableton lives BPM at 120 my BSP tempo is moving between 119to 122  :( .

Does womeone knows how to fix this ?
I already tried to change my USB cable and i just got my BSP updated.

Hi this is normal midi sync sends it messages in series
And the bsp sometimes reads messages late.
So the tempo may look like it's moving but it's not
Can you hear the change ?

Hi guys,
(I know the thread is old, but it may be useful for other guys)

This behavior is normal, I gave an answer here for DrumBrute:

Same thing applies to BeatStep Pro. Try syncing two BSP together and you will see if it moves this way.

I have tried Live with both Windows and Mac OSX at 300 BPM, with Live as a Master.

  • With Windows -> Tempo was climbing sometimes to 320 and more BPMs
  • With OSX -> Tempo was tight

I guess it is due to windows USB/MIDI drivers that bring more jitter.
Moreover, if you use bad quality hubs, it may be also linked.

By the way, you should try two BSP together if you can (Clock DIN 24 or MIDI DIN) before incriminate BSP.
Other manufacturers usually choose not to display the tempo as it moves a lot.
Unfortunately, I think this feature that is there to help people knowing their tempo on BSP may disappear in the future as too much guys complain about it without really hearing any sync issue.

Regards,
Y.
