Looper - problem with playback

Hi guys,

I have an annoying problem with Looper. First things first - apart from the regular studio work I also use Ableton's Looper on stage, to loop my violin. Previously I used the RC-50 but long story short - I switched to Ableton entirely.

I successfully MIDI mapped the Line6 FBV Express to trigger the record/overdub/play button in the looper. Easy - no problems here.

Then I try to loop some music on the fly. I select 8 bars because I loop to my an external sequencer, which also has 8 bars predefined, and which sends MIDI messages to Ableton to set the tempo. The first take - no problem - everything works fine.

But when I overdub, the looper "skips back" the playback 4 bars and continues to playback normally. WHY?! I am going crazy here!

I am not sure if I make myself clear so I recorded this (without sound) and here's the link (the irritating thing happens at 1:00). Also - in this recording you will see that there is no EXT setting of the tempo by the sequencer. I disabled it thinking that this might be the problem. Well, it's not. Please help if you can.

Best,

Wojtek
