First beat too loud ?
I have been using Live for awhile now, but recently I noticed an oddity (not sure if it's a bug or me) when creating some tracks. Often the very first kick is way louder than the subsequent kicks (to the point of clipping).
When the kick is in 4 bar loop (in a 8 bar clip) as the kick comes around to 2nd / 3rd / 4th loop, it does not overdrive - it's only the very first time when that clip is played.
If the clip ends and then restarts after a bar or two the same thing happens - the very first kick is overdriven.
There aren't extras instruments playing on the first beat - not any differently than the rest of the track.
I have tried turning down the velocity and volume of the first instance of the kick, but it still does it.
I have muted all other instruments / tracks and it still does it.
It's almost like Live is surprised and temporarily overwhelmed by the first beat, but after that it is fine.
There doesn't appear to be a spike in the CPU usage when it happens
