Windows XP, midisport 4x4 (USB), NUENDO, external midi modules.(not internal), so I don't use sound card latency.
when I start up Nuendo I play the midi controller and it records instanteniously (as it should be), but gradualy the midi recordings start to get delayed . In other words, it sounds fine when I play, but actually they get recorded behind in the nuendo. meaning, if I hit on the perfect timing it will record before the time.
This gradually gets worse, so that in one hour the recording will get behind as much as 1/8 or more. Then I will restart nuendo and it will start all over again, where first it's perfect and gradually becoming bad.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

There are quite a few ways to do this.The simplest way is to just use the USB port on the keyboard and run that into the computer. If your keyboard has a USB, then you dont need the midi to connect to a computer. You would still use the midi however for other sound modules and items that do have a midi in port however. If you dont have a midi in then you need to get hardware that does as a computer will not have a midi in. There are basic adapters that you can get that just have a midi connector to usb adapter. There are external sound card devices that will do this like the tascam 144. There are also simple devices made my midiman such as the 2x2 midisport that allows you to connect up to 2 midi devices to a computer. The cheapest quickest method if you are just starting out is the midi to usb cable though. Places like walmart, best buy, and radio shack will generally have these. However with making digital music the cheapest is not generally ideal but will get you by in the meantime.If you ever plan on recording audio like vocals or guitar then I would recommend just getting something like the Tascam 144 MK II as it will allow you to input midi, spdif, vocals with phantom power, guitar line in, through it with 24/94 bit conversion, audio drivers, and a bit of software for simple settings configuration. This would be more of an intermediate interface. If you want some pro solutions, then I would recommend going to the pro's at a musician store and talking to them.
you might need to update the software and drivers http://download.cnet.com/midisport-series-audio-interface/3000-2120_4-35271.ht The USB MIDISPORT series is M-Audio's line of bus-powered multi-port interfaces. The MIDISPORT line accommodates lots of gear, and its bus-powered architecture provides the option of totally mobile operation. Features include support for multiple discrete MIDI channels and multiple outputs to transmit discrete MIDI channels. The MIDISPORT line requires no external power and has a compact design for mobile or desktop use
what you need is a "FULL DUPLEX ASIO DRIVE",which you get with programs like cubase sx, this is like a universal driver which has always synced any audio equipment i've hooked up to my computer, internal & external.make sure it's the full duplex & not the asio4all v2. But really you shouldn't be having much trouble if your using a USB midi interface.unless your computers sound card is ****. try resetting the sound cards sample rate to 44100HZ which is the standard rate for most audio,or 48000HZ for digital.
You could look in the manual on Page 5 for connections to external equipment...
Connect a USB cable from your computer to the MPK49. The unit will be powered through the USB connection. Alternatively, if you do not wish to use a computer in your setup or if you wish
to power the MPK49 externally, please plug in a 6V-1A DC power adapter.
2. If you would like to use an external sound module, connect a 5-pin MIDI cable from the MIDI OUT of the MPK49 to the MIDI IN of the external device.
3. If you would like to use another MIDI controller in your setup, connect a 5-pin MIDI cable from the MIDI OUT of the controller to the MIDI IN of the MPK49.
On Page 13 the first of the FAQ's is:
Question: Does the MPK49 have internal sounds?
Answer: No. The MPK49 is a MIDI-controller, which means that it does not contain any sounds inside but is instead used
to control external sound devices, such as hardware and software synthesizers, sequencers and drum machines.
If you lack the manual you can go to retrevo.com and download it for free after you register.
Explanaition: This delay you are experiencing is called latency. All equipment or signal processing unit introduces some latency even if extremely low. Computer tends to be a lot worse than outboard gear.
Solution: Look for Asio4All, this little driver will help you improve your audio input latency. And remember, the smaller the buffer size the lower latency you get.
It would help a lot if you had another Midi device to try. Then you could narrow down the problem.
Another thing to try is to download some simple piece of Midi software such as Bome's Mouse keyboard (free 30-day evaluation) and see if you can get that to work (using your mouse on the screen keyboard to trigger notes on your MIDI keyboard). You may get further clues by trying that.
