looper - why doesn't "x bars" record whole bars?
I am trying to set up my rig so that I can record guitar on top of programmed drum patterns live. I'd rather not have to predetermine the length of the guitar loop I want to record (1 bar, 2 bars, 8 bars).
However, when I punch in and out with the Record setting at "x-bars" it doesn't record the number of bars that I'm overdubbing on- but rather takes whatever tiny timing mistakes I make and amplifies them, making the loops out of sync and unusable.
I know that these are my errors being blown up out of proportion, but since I have no problem at all recording what I want when I predetermine the length of the loop, I don't see why this should work either.
It seems that the setting "x bars" is really no quantization at all. If I tried to record 8 bars, I will often see in the 'length' (in the black area, to the right of the BPM counter) it will say the length of my loop is 7.3.3
Is there a way to get it to actually resolve to a whole number of bars, without predetermining the number of bars beforehand?
