I ran into an issue tonight where suddenly my patterns and the tape won’t sync up. I’m checking that I’m starting recording at the very beginning of the tape, pressing record then the root key to trigger the pattern in sync like usual. On the tempo screen beat match is on, and tape is set to 1:1.
Not sure what happened, but nothing I do will get the patterns and the tape to sync anymore. What’s the obvious thing I’m missing?
The issue was that even though the tape and the pattern were set to beat match, when it was recording in blank, empty parts of the tape the patterns I was making never lined up with the notches. They would at firstbut then drift. I wasn’t comparing it to pre-recorded material, I was trying to record something brand new and the tape and my patterns were just not lining up. It’s like they were set at different tempos, even though I hadn’t changed them.
I reset everything to the factory state, and reloaded my drum patches to try again and now it’s working exactly like I would expect. Just some weird hiccup I guess.
