Hello - I’m not sure if I have found a bug. I’ll explain what is happening and hopefully someone can confirm if I am doing something wrong.
I have created a song. All tracks are set to (the default) FREE PLAY mode and are set to different lengths but none are less than 1 bar. The verses are 8 bars long, the chorus is 8 bars long. I have programmed a sequence like this:
S1 (8 bars) - S2 (8 bars) - S3 (8 bars) - S4 (7 bars) - S5 (2/4 bar) - S6 (2/4 bar) - S7 (8 bars) - S8 (8 bars)
There is a musical transition from S6 to S7, which is why S6 is only 2/4 of a bar as the drum pattern changes sightly for half a bar to introduce the next part of the song.
If I play the sequence in PLAY mode, from S1 to the end, everything sounds good.
If I decide to play the sequence in PLAY mode, but start it from S7 (because my vocalist needs to listen to that part of the song to record her vocals), S7 misses 1/4 of a bar at the end. In other words, S8 comes in 1/4 of a bar too early.
I know that it is exactly 1/4 of a bar that is missed because if I create a copy of S7 with a sequence length of 1/4 bar (called S9) and insert it after S7 (playing the sequence in PLAY mode, but start it from S7 as before), the timing is perfect.
HOWEVER, with that 1/4 bar (S9) inserted after S7 - if I play the sequence in PLAY mode, from S1 to the end then it pushes everything out by 1/4 bar when it gets to that sequence number.
I’ve tried to explain this clearly - so hope it makes sense.
QUESTION: If this a bug or have I misunderstood how this is supposed to work?
