    Default Sync Traktor 2 ( Mac Vs PC Windows XP )

    Hello People

    I would like to ask for help for this setup, syncing a Mac and a Windows XP-based PC via Ethernet cable.
    I've tried via MIDI but the results are beyond expectations, swaying a lot of time and staying out, most of the time.
    I've read in several places that the network system is more reliable and stable, with much better results at the level of traktor sync.
    I'm looking for a good tutorial or a help in your direction.
    Thanks in advance for your help

    MIDI over ethernet is an option. unless you have like devices (2 s4's) then thats going to be your best method.

    As a Windows user and at the risk of getting a chorus of 'this again's, the problem is most probably your PC. The MIDI clock implementation leaves a lot to be desired.

    MIDI clock in general is pretty rubbish to be honest. Couple of options:

    1) slave to a hardware source such as a mixer with MIDI clock
    2) abandon MIDI clock, dial in the same bpm on both computers and pitch bend into time

    to synchronize the hand, so I know how.
    ethernet connection was asking, as have read that it was much more stable.
    from what I read Richie Hawtin sync via ethernet and he knows what he does, then I think the best option.
    asked for help in a way to do it.

    Sounds like the best method to me. It's like beat matching for dummies.

    It's still MIDI clock sync.
