I have a Boomerang III that I have set up to sync with my BeatBuddy. Initially it works well, but over time it drifts. My MIDI path goes from BeatBuddy >> TimeFactor >> ModFactor >> Boomerang.
If I simply record a basic 4-beat loop synced to the BeatBuddy, over the course of about 5 minutes you can start to hear that it is a tiny bit off. After 10 minutes it is clearly noticeable, and at the 30 minute mark it sounds like sneakers in a dryer. I understand most of us aren’t playing over the same loop for 30 minutes; But if this is MIDI sync, shouldn’t I be able to come back in a couple of days and have these two devices still in sync?
I find sometimes when playing live if I have a loop going (and it is well-synced) that after I hit a few fills or transition to different parts, the Boomerang and BeatBuddy start getting out of sync. It is difficult to reproduce on demand but is clearly happening across different beats/songs/tempos.
Is there some setting I might be missing that could fix this?
Is anyone else with a Boomerang experiencing this? Am I better off (sync-wise) selling my Boomerang and getting an Infinty?
