Drum loop sounds weird. Artifacts

Hello there. I have an issue that comes once in a while. I have a perfectly straight clip using an 808 kick 4/4 four to the floor as simple as it gets. When i play it on some cases and without having record any automation the 3 kick of the 4 in the clip sounds weird. has a bit of a "click" sound in it. if i shorten the loop the problem goes away. Anyone else having this issue? It also happens if i sometimes make one midi track 4/4 kick and a second one a snare hitting with every second kick like in house music. if i have a loop lets say 8bars at some points the snare and kick sound like they are drifting a tiny bit apart so the don`t sound as one contantly. I repeat, Without automation recorded...

 

Second: Anyone knows if i can loop a selection of clips in a row in Session view at once?

When i drag multiple  consolidated clips from the Arragnement view into the seesion view i need to manually activate loop on each clip. Thats a bit of a bummer this way....

    The last part of your question: yes, you can loop several parts in arrangement view before moving them over to session, and the clips will then be looped.

    I have this drum loop glitch issue and it's incredibly annoying. I noticed it when using kick 2 vst that every few drum hits the sound changes. There's no automation and i've rendered it to audio and tried looping various kick drum on shot samples and the same thing happens whichever part I loop. It always seems create some random glitch or pop or weird change to the sound on the first over every 4 repetitions of the one shot sample played. It's very strange. Did you ever sort it?
     
    My cpu levels are low, my buffer is set quite high and no indication of hard drive issues. I've had this issue with previous versions of live i'm sure but only just got around to researching it. I don't know how to stop it or why it's happening.

    Sounds like it might be voice handling? If your sample is in an instance of simpler, try increasing the number of voices.

    As for the drift, it sounds as though your clip might not be locked on the grid.

    I don't think it can be voice handling or drift because it happens whether its:

    An audio loop i recorded from external hardware triggered by ableton midi (at the same tempo) then moved the loop to start at the first kick to account for latency. (Zero crossing Ensured)

    A Kick in Drum rack and adjusted start and end points

    A Kick drum VST being midi triggered in live

    Whether I loop the whole few bars of kicks or just any individual 1 kick from the whole lot it still happens.
