asked Mar 2, 2016 in Studio One 3 by djgrimmstl (160 points)
Just installed Studio3.2 Pro on my Lenovo ThninkPad S1 Yoga w/ Windows 8.1Pro 64bit and I am using a M-Audio Keystation MIni32

I am trying to record tracks with the internal instruments (Impact, Mojito, Mai Tai) and nothing plays back the way I played it. Everything is behind  the beat. I am not the greatest player, but this stuff is way off, even the note length has changed (becuase the portamento is not playing back like I recorded it). Selecting the whole note range and trying to drag into place does not fix it, each note was not effected the same.  I can go in and move each note and put it on the beat, but that is a pain. I did notice today while playing back, that the cursor also lags behind the beat.  It is also anoying because I am playing to a looped track, and my 1 beat always ends up at the end of the loop unless I really hang back.  The Performace monitor is is barely taking a hit at 15% running and 10% sitting.

Sorry to hear about the recent issues you have been experiencing.

1. Make sure you are using an ASIO audio interface/driver. An ASIO driver provides a low-latency and high fidelity interface between a software application and a computer's sound card. Very important.

2. Adjust your audio buffer settings.

3. Use Input Quantize: Engage Input Quantize to snap recorded notes to the rhythmic value set by the Quantize parameter. When recording parts that are destined to be heavily quantized (such as synth arpeggios or drum-machine-style beats), this saves you the
step of later Quantizing the contents of your loop.
