HID input Delay?
Hi gang! Am putting a simple comp together for our drummer to be able to trigger Sound FX/DMX light hits/Midi to Ableton etc.etc. from a Guitar Hero drumset. All is very good, and I have it working from a Playstation Kit also (they are VERY similar in their HID outputs) Super convenient and super cheap way to add basic triggering to an acoustic kit. (Garage sale, $10 each)
Problem: after (about) 5 minutes of non-use, it seems to go into a quasi-sleep mode, by which I mean - you can trigger anywhere on the kit and QC does not seem to recognize the hit for upwards of a second and a half. After that one late-hitting trigger, all is good and very, very responsive - (almost as good a a Midi kit, just no velocity :( and works great with very little latency - until you let the whole rig sit for a few minutes again...
Have done a super-stripped down version w/just audio file player and HID input and still get the same results. What I am triggering seems to be immaterial, get the same results with video/dmx/audio/Midi trigger.
Have also tried putting a timer that cycles/refreshes the audio file player to enable/disable when it hasn't been triggered in X while, but no love there either.
Is this a system thing, (QC priority??)or an HID input patch thing? BTW Screen savers/virus/energy saver disabled.
Any ideas on a workaround?
