I am running Studio One 3 on an iMac 27 Sierra 10.12.5

I've done two recordings recently where I'm recording a band live during practice, recording 4 mono and 1 stereo tracks through a Focusrite audio interface. 2 of the mono tracks are completely out of sync with the other tracks. I've tried to analyze the configuration and details of the tracks, but I can't find anything wrong with them. The "out of sync" problem gets worse the further into the recording it gets - as this was band practice it's a 2 hour recording. If I had to guess I would say that the two channels are somehow set to a different BPM than the other tracks and are therefore being slowed down? It makes no sense. Obviously since I'm recording live the BPM in the recording is not important nor have I changed it in any way. I am a new user so I imagine there's something I'm doing wrong here.

Thanks for any help.

The user had tracks set to "Follow" in the Tempo field in the Inspector.  Switching it to "Don't Follow" fixed it.

If you run into a similar issue, check those Inspector settings.
