Syncing DP w/ Ableton

I’ve been trying to sync DP with Ableton for a while now and it is extremely inconsistent and now won’t sync at all anymore. Anybody have any experience with this?

Inquiring minds need more info to diagnose your issue:
1. Same computer or two diff ones? If diff computers, how are you transmitting the sync message?
2. If same computer are you using the IAC bus in AMS setup?
3. Is Ableton the master or slave?
4. Do you have MTC being sent from the master to the slave

I don't have Ableton so my suggestion is purely theoretical...

Ableton supports Rewire. So does DP. I have used DP in sync with Reason so maybe it works the same way with DP/Ableton.

DP will only be Rewire master. Therefore launch DP first. With Reason, you launch that second, so perhaps the same with Ableton.

In order for DP and Reason to work together there must be at least one audio path set up in DP to receive from Reason. Once Reason is launched I set up an Aux track in DP and assign Reason to that aux track. So perhaps the same for Ableton?

Launch DP.

Launch Ableton.

In DP create an aux track. Make sure the aux track is routed to a working output. Set the input of the aux track to an Ableton return.

Press Play in DP. Does Ableton respond?

Unless you have a specific reason to not use rewire I would also suggest it.
Ableton Live 10 even allows a rewire slaved Live to use the Push hardware controller for it's own drum machine etc.

If you have reasons like VST/AU support in Live as well as DP, which Live in slave mode won't host, then MTC worked fine for me here the times I used it.

Hey guys I have a question - can the Motu effects be opened as plugins inside ableton?
