Hi. I'm using Ableton Live 8.2.2 to record basic band stuff: guitar/drums/vocals etc and keep running across the same problem.
In the image it's the guitar (gtr 60) I'm dropping in and out for a portion of the song. You can see I've set the sample to drop in at the beginning of a bar, but when it's actually recorded the sample is off the beat. This is especially a problem when trying to record and quantize midi drums.
Frustratingly I can record exactly the same thing a second time without changing or moving anything and it'll come in perfectly on a beat. I'm sure this is due to my occasional sloppy timing, but how do I set Ableton so that the sample starts recording on a beat, regardless of whether I've played it absolutely perfectly or not? Any suggestions would be hugely appreciated.
