[MPC] gone from 4 bars to 2 bars, seq plays through 4 bars

strange bug or user error, don't know which
have a sequence, originally 4 bars
looping 3-4
but i only want bars 3-4 to remain in this sequence
so i delete first 2 bars
bars 3-4 now play first (as bars 1-2)
but now the sequence still plays 4 bars
only last 2 bars are silence
(although the seq length is 2 bars!!!)
only when i switch off the looping sign on MAIN, the sequence plays (first) 2 bars
and then i can continue with other sequences right after bar 2
but when i switch the looping ON, there are 2 empty bars inserted/played after bar 2

what am i doing wrong?
can i see/inspect somewhere the (whole) timeline of the sequence, so i can see what's going on?
(i inspected all tracks with list edit, but there was no note or event inserted after bar 2)

  • Hey tiger001,

    Thanks for posting!

    I was able to replicate the issue you are experiencing. It seems that after deleting bars from the Edit window, the Sequence Looper retains its settings from before the cut. You'll notice that the Start/End points of the Looper will default to 2/2 while the Bar, Beat and Tick display will show bars 3-4 looping. It seems that the Looper is approximating the closest value to three and four within a two bar phrase, as they don't technically exist.

    To reset the Looper, turn the Start point to 1 and toggle the End point down to 1 then right back to 2. You'll find the Looper then snaps to the appropriate bars.

    I will report this to the development team for further investigation.

    Thank you for your feedback!

  • this is even worse than first reported
    if you go to song mode, even if you re-setted the looping as described above (you turn off looping and then turn on again), so if you go to song mode from main, (and the erroneous pattern plays first) it will still play it's whole length
    also, in song mode, if you stop halfway through & re-start again (or play your whole song and start again), erroneous pattern will play it's full length
    you have to stop song play by pressing (+) 2 times stop for the pattern to play (its shorter length) as set in MAIN
