I can't get Augustus Loop to loop for a few bars, even if i put "16" in
What would happen if I used no quantization for recording? Hmm....I'd
probably need it for playback though.
Ableton live records with latency if I don't use Software monitoring. I
have to use SOftware monitroing for the wave to line up right. Strange
I think my MIDI set-up is fine...
