Beats slipping out when making a mix
I'm trying to make a mix in Abelton and have encountered a problem that's just doing my head in to no end.
So I've set my master tempo to 150bpm, and have imported some tracks I wanna play.
Once I import the track, I double click on it to bring up the sample visual. I set the warp marker onto the first beat (I have auto warp turned off). I then set the segment BPM to 150. Then line the cued tracks kick up to the previous tracks kick.
This process has worked fine for me for the first 5 tracks. Everything is great and beat matched and I have no complaints.
But when I import the 6th track, following the same process, nothing matches up.
The segment BPM says 150bpm, but when I zoom in I can visually see that its not beat matched.
I went back into the sample visual and tried moving the warp marker around and double checked it was on the first beat. And it is.
I even tried a different track, same problem.
I then decided that maybe track 5 was the issue, so I deleted that, and tried a different track. And now mixing track 5 into track 4 has the same problem. Ctrl+z got track 5 back up, and its beat matched (obviously).
It seems like any track I bring into the mix from this point, stops being beat matched (and I have scoured my library and they all have the same result)
All tracks have been purchased from legitimate websites. No dodgy youtube/vinyl rips, only high quality MP3's.
I don't understand why it was doing what I wanted, and now its not. Help! What am I doing wrong?
