I really love this machine but I am having a huge problem with EXT Sync with Beat Match. PLEASE HELP!!!
To illustrate I recorded a simple 1 bar, 4/4 quarter note kick drum beat to 120BPM. When I midi sync the OP-1 to my Boss rc300 at 120BPM, and send the “start” midi signal from the rc300, the recorded OP-1 beat drifts out of time quickly. HOWEVER, if I turn up the OP-1 metronome, the metronome is perfectly in sync and does not drift at all. This leads me to believe the tape deck is the issue, as the recorded drum loop on the OP-1 does not sound in sync. I’m not sure how this can be, because the kick drum loop was recorded at exactly 120BPM, the rc300 is sending exactly 120BPM to the OP-1, the tap loop appears to align with the beat markers, the metronome is perfectly on beat, but the recorded loop on the tape IS NOT???
Anyone know a fix?
