Combination of VI's and Hardware


I am running all my VI's though Vepro 5 but still wanted to incorporate some hardware sound modules into my setup. I like to keep things in MIDI as long as possible. I have noticed that my Yamaha P155 is out of sync tempo wise with my VI. Below are two waveforms both piano from the same MIDI file. the top one is kontact piano the button is my hardware. Obviously I can nudge the track - but again I want to keep it in MIDI as long as possible. My Drums bass and strings are also all in VEPRO so hardware piano sounds out of sync. Any ideas how to fix this? Thanks!

I am running Steinberg Ur824 interface, Pro Tools 12 and MOTU micro lite midi interface.

Update: I thought that VEPRO 5 was introducing latency on the VI's so I printed the KONTAKT piano on an instrument track internally in Pro Tools. The wave form was the same as the one printed through VEPRO 5. It seems my hardware piano is early...any way to sync it to my VI's?

no one uses external hardware modules?

I have figured out a way to use midi offset on midi track. everything sounds aligned after about 5 mins of experimenting to get the offset right.

Unfortunately it is still Buffer size dependent but I guess I need a new computer anyway to set a hardware buffer size and forget about it.

I currently have 2.4 ghz i5 with 4 gigs of ram. Late 2013 13 inch macbook pro.
