hey,
ive been using logic pro 9(.1.2) for a few years now but im entirely self-taught on it so i usually miss super obvious or easily fixable things, so bear with me if this is one of those or i say something stupid

recently ive begun working on more intricate digital drum rhythms played live and ive noticed that if im recording myself playing (on my akai mpk49 or lpd8) some sequence thats relatively quick or complex that logic wont pick up a lot of the notes and seems to record the strikes that hit nearest one of the tempo marker things. does that make sense? i feel like theres a simple solution i just cant find it

also im on a 2009 macbook pro (2.52 GHz intel core, idk if thats important) but getting a new mac soon if that has anything to do with it

also also if theres a sepcific place to ask questions like this im sorry!! ive never posted on a forum before.. i feel like im meeting my girl's parents lol

thanks!!!!:abduct:

Hey there - To clarify what you are asking, is it Midi note info that is not "recording" (as piano roll info) or are you talking about actual audio out of these devices.
Sorry, I am not familiar with either the mpk49 or lpd8 so I'm just trying to get to what the actual problem is. :hippy:

Are you quantizing your performances? If so, is it possible the quantize resolution you are using is not fine enough to capture all the subdivisions you are playing?

If you are recording as audio, is it possible flex time is active and affecting the timing of the playback?
