Clips have a slight delay when hitting play


Thanks or your help.

When I play an audio sample in session view when the music is already playing, it's slightly delayed, however when i stop and start them all at the same time, they are in sync.

I've checked the quantise setting to make sure they're not on a fixed grid, but still doesn't work.

Any advice would be appreciated.

    you may not have your global quantize settings set correctly. if you hit command 0 recently, then they would be turned off, and you would be left with non syncing tracks.

    Fixed grid has very little to do with quantization, it only has to do with lining up events in live's clips.

    You want to make sure all of your clips start on the 1.1.1, that the global quantize section is set to something like 1 bar, which will determine when your clips are launched, and that all the notes inside your clips start on the first bar.

    these are some common mistakes that often lead people to non synced midi and audio tracks.
