Tracks randomly going out of tune

We've been having an issue lately where after opening a set, the pitch of certain tracks will change, making it out of tune with the rest of the set. The super weird part is this seems to occur randomly, and importing from an older version of the set doesn't fix the issue, and neither does opening an older version.  We've had this issue with both operator and simpler, but theres no reason to think it would be isolated to just those two instruments.   Really scratching our heads on this one, has anyone run into this before?

    Yes, +1,  same symptoms here, except all happened with 3rd party synths on midi. Exit + restart fixes the problem but only temporarily. The song I'm working on was started in 8 and re opened in 9.1.2, (not sure if that is relevant). I have not altered any pitch bend automation in any clips in this project. The pitch change so far always seems to be  3 semitone down (and a bit) ie this song is in E and i have to play a G note on the keyboard to play the affected track back in tune with the rest, except its not quite perfectly in tune anymore. Really frustrating...

    I've similar situation in live performance:-(

    I use a setup with Push, Launchpad, Midimix.
    I use 6 tracks for clips (Drum, Bass, etc.) controlled with Launchpad (start/stop clips) and Midimix (volume, pan, send) and I use several tracks with racks controlled (played) with Push.
    In the track with racks I've, tipically, one Drum Rack (with several samples) and one/two synths splitted in two three differen zones.
    Sometime it works well but sometime, suddendly, the samples and/or the synths controlled with Push go out of tune (and sometime also out of time). 

    I use Push with the new 64 pads drum rack function (one shot for Drum Rack, note input for synth).

    The Synth are all from Ableton Suite execpt 1 3rd part (RAW by Papen).

    If I don't solve this problem it will be impossibile, for me, to use Live in live performance :-(

    I've been experiencing this problem a lot lately and it's totally random. I rely on Ableton heavily for all my shows and I have one tomorrow. Has anyone figured out how to solve this problem yet?
