Clip Position jumping when changing length - BUG?

Post by orionka » Sun Oct 29, 2017 2:35 pm

Hey guys,

I could need a hint from you.
I currently try to match the tempo of an audio file by slicing up the clip in one-bar pieces.
I drag the audio to the position where it sounds best.

this is fine.

however, by dragging a clip to a neighbor for adjusting the cross-fade position there is this thing happening, which is annoying:
the neighbor clip moves its start-position inside the clip itself to another position. You can see it jumping to somewhere in the file by just dragging the previous clip at the border.
I can't do any crossfading.

The clip was warped as tempo master before, but warp is turned of for both audio clips.
this must clearly be a bug. Has anyone experienced this?
I expect this to be because of my global tempo automation in this set.
However, in this region the tempo is constant.

It is a bug and here is the solution:

the jumping clip contains information of the previous global tempo and uses this for alignment in the arrangement even when warp is turned of.
Hit warp again, press "yes" for overwriting it with the current tempo setting and you can change the crossfade position.

I wanted to keep the tempo information inside this clip, because it was warped correctly... but f*ck it...
