The Pre-roll throws Maschine and other MIDI based sequencers out of sync. These instruments/sequencers begin playback from the start of the Pre-roll instead of waiting for recording to commence. This throws them a bar or more out of sync with the arrangement. Ableton Live, Studio One & Cubase do not suffer from this issue.

Is there a work around and is this a known/accepted issue?


Yep, I can confirm this as well, took me ages to narrow it down. Happens with all instruments.

Very, very sad. I just ran into this too. Why even have a pre-roll?

Same thing here ! big issue !! I have a lot of harware (tr8s..drum brute..arpegiated synths) and they start completely out of sync with pre roll.

Please fix it !
