Loops that are automatically stretched to project tempo using AudioWarp will drift out of sync with rest of project.
Create an empty project (File -> New Project -> More Tab)
Press F5 to load media bay and open a hard quantised pre-made beat loop, (eg a dance loop) and make sure ‘align beats to project’ is selected so that AudioWarp will be used to stretch the beat to the projects’ tempo.
Set tempo to 137
Set project to loop for one bar and make sure cycle is on.
Hit play (start) and leave cycling for at least 10 minutes for sync problem to be noticable (the longer, the more noticable.)
Even if track is stopped and restarted, the loop will be out of sync with the metronome - so the problem will manifest even if the 10+ minutes is made up of interrupted playback.
- To temporarily remedy this, double click the beat loop wav to open the sample editor and click ‘musical mode’ twice in the AudioWarp settings although loop will eventually loose sync again over time.
