Looper quantization

Post by nebben » Tue Dec 11, 2018 11:55 am

I have already spent a few hours with Looper effect but still don't get it how to make quantization work.
In a normal case (without Looper) when I set a global quantization for example to 1/4 and then I push a key 16 times within a bar, I will have only 4 keys registered - the ones that fall on each beat, since this is 1/4. But with looper it is not the case. I set its quantization to 1/4 or anything else and everything gets recorded. Can anyone give me a tip here ?

Firstly, it seems that you're confusing Global Quantization and Recording Quantization.

Secondly, Looper is an Audio Device, it records audio. Its quantize parameter has an effect on when it starts/stops, but no effect on what is recording into it.
