Hi Mark-

You didn't explain your parameter settings, but I'll guess that you are 
using AutoRecord? There is a known problem with AutoRecord and sync in 
has the issues you describe. Fortunately, there is an easy alternative way 
to do the same thing using the more advanced TimeCopy function. In fact, 
TimeCopy is really a superset of what AutoRecord does, so it is probably 
the better option for recording multiple loops anyway. Plus it doesn't 
the offset problem.

This has been posted before. If you want the full details of how to use 
TimeCopy, try this link:
