When I record audio I encounter the following situation with the display of the audio event. Please refer to the screen shot:
To illustrate the issue, I have recorded 2 bars of quarter notes. I also manually entered 2 bars of quarter notes on a midi track by drawing with the pencil tool.
The recorded audio is not visibly aligned with the bars+beat ruler. However, the audio and midi is perfectly aligned with the metronome (midi GM wave table) sound wise at play back.
When selecting the audio event, the info line displays an offset 0.2.0.0 The value can’t be increased in order to shift the wave form to the left because of a snap line in the event. When lowering the offset value, the sound can be shifted to the right, however. But this is not what I want off course.
This obviously makes it very difficult to do any kind of editing of audio events, as I can’t place them correct relative to the ruler, in case I e.g. want to edit a single note that was off beat.
If I go to Project setup and change the Display offset to a negative value, it will move the audio and midi event to the left relative to the ruler and make them display aligned, but then the sound is no more aligned with the metronome at play back.
What have I missed to maintain in my setup?
