    Vl3 midi sync glitch!


    I hooked up my VL3 to Ableton with a MIDI cable and now the VL3 takes the BPM of Ableton, which is good. BUT! When I start looping the loop is not steady. Sometimes there is no glitch at the end but like every other round there is a glitch. Which in my opinion means that the VL3 is not perfectly syncing with Ableton and needs to skip a millisecond now and then.

    And that really doesn't sound good you know.

    Is there a solution for this problem?

    Hey Jan,
    Do you have the looper mode set to "Quantize"? Because you should :P If you do, and you feel that the timing of your button presses isn't the issue, a video of your problem would be really useful in debugging this (timing issues are tricky in text form).
