clips are launching late - not on global quantization

sometimes when i try to launch a clip with push or via mouse click the clip begins early or late by 2 beats or so (I keep global quantization on 1 bar and never mess with this on my individual clips)

this seems to happen only on certain projects/sets and intermittently. if i open a different or new set, everything clears up, but it does seem to repeat on certain sets. is this a file corruption situation? or is there an easy mistake i am making / overlooking?

thanks for the help

    to clarify - I am using live 9, all clips are set to global quantization and global q is set to 1 bar

    Could it be your computer RAM? Maybe some projects are heavier than others. Experiment with a very light one, then a heavy one with lots of synths.

    I have the same problem.  I too have global quantization set to 1 bar.

    I've narrowed the cause down to a previous scene being set to 2/4 time lasting 6 bars (or any non multiple of 4).  Even though the scene following that one is set to 4/4, whenever I trigger GlobalStop, move to the first scene of another song (songs are just collections of scenes), and then trigger ScenePlay, it begins 2 beats late.  This occurs even if I triggered GlobalStop twice ensuring that the global position was reset to 1.1.1.1

    I have included time signatures in the names of all my scenes hoping for a fix but it hasn't helped.

    Any ideas?

    PS: [SceneStart - Global Stop - SceneStart] fixes it, but that is hardly a live solution.
