I’m using Studio One 6 with Scaler 2.8.
I recorded a sequence of a chord progression, bound it to section C, turned off Sync to DAW.
I selected a pluck sound, turned on Perform > Rhythms > Common 10 and set Perform Mode to Follow.
It starts on an offbeat and has a nice bounce to it.
I turned on Midi Capture and was surprised that the performance had lost it’s groove.
I realized that the Midi Capture started on the beat and lost the bounce.
I noticed that the Midi editor had notes that were zero length. These are the notes that give the groove the bounce.
I tried routing the Midi events directly to a virtual instrument (Synthmaster 2 with pluck preset) and found that although it played on the offbeat, the bounce was missing. I tried another virtual instrument (Analog Lab 5 with pluck preset) and found that it had the bounce of the groove. My guess is that Analog Lab 5 was triggering a sound for the zero length notes but Synthmaster 2 was not.
I edited the zero length notes in the captured Midi and made them 1/32 notes and now it sounds just right whichever Virtual Instrument pluck sound I use.
I can’t find a setting in Scaler to control this. I’ve used Scaler for a while but hadn’t noticed this before although I had noticed the zero length notes in the captured Midi. It might be because I use Analog Lab a lot which seems to not show this problem.
Am I missing something or is this a known issue? I didn’t find a topic about it on the forum, but maybe I missed it.
Here’s a screenshots (as a new user I can only upload one):
