I swear I’m going crazy, but when I record midi in a loop now, the first notes always end up outside of the right locator. This was never the behavior, and I swear there’s a setting I changed accidentally that would make it so that those notes would get preference at the beginning of the loop.
Am I nuts?
Do you record in the editor or in the arranger area, please?
Have you got Automatic Quantization enabled or disabled? If disabled, enabling it may solve the problem.
How is your Preferences > MIDI > Extended Playback Range of Notes the Start before the Part option set up, please? The default value is 0.
