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

    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.

    I'm having the same problem. Except mine occurs when trying to launch record on a new scene. I'll arm the track and launch record in the bar before I want to start recording, and when I begin playing, the track still waits another four bars before it starts recording.

    I'm also trying to use Live as part of a live-looping performance, but can't really do so with this issue.

    we were having this same problem - sometimes when the set is stopped and you try to launch a scene, the clips flash green for a few beats then launch late. 

    the answer is to set launch quantization to "none" for all the clips in the scene that is launching late. not the global quantize setting on the top bar. do it in the clip launch properties window.

    it's a workaround, and may create complications for other use cases, but for the issue described above, it works.

    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.
