Anyone having a Sync issue with the new EMPIRE BREAKS Play Kontakt Instrument?

I purchased Empire Breaks yesterday and almost right from the beginning I'm noticing where it will slow down and speed up in Maschine 2. I turn on the click to see if the click was changing tempos as well but the click was steady, it was just the output of Empire Breaks. I also record a single midi note on c3 for a total of four measure (snapped to the grid). Over a period of a couple of minutes, Empire Breaks would begin to drift. Also I notice that when looping the four-bar sequence, at the end of the midi loop (just one continuous note), Empire Breaks would kinda hick-up and then get out of sync completely.

I replace Empire Breaks with Butch Vig drums and found NO issues. I also tried Superior Drummer 3 and again NO issues.

One other thing to mention, I had an instance of Session Guitarist - Acoustic Strummer 2 and the newest one, Session Guitarist - Electric Mint also playing. Both Session Guitarist were in sync. Then I disabled both of them but still found Empire Breaks to go out-of-sync.

I'm thinking it's the instrument itself.......

Regards,

Chuck Green

    This one is weird. I think I can confirm what you're saying in Maschine, but in Reaper (and FL Studio, and Live 11, and Studio One 5...) a 4 bar long C3 note loops perfectly fine over here...

    Thanks Paul for doing the additional research and response. I don't like to see bugs in software but at the same time, I don't like being the only one experiencing the issue. This confirms that the bug is unique to Kontakt and not our DAWs or systems. That in itself is great news. Thanks again. Appreciated.

    I haven't tried in Maschine 2 software yet, but in Komplete Kontrol I noticed that when a "break" is playing, adjusting the various knobs along the bottom affects the sound quite dramatically (more than I feel it should) then it settles down again.

    Thanks EvilDragon & PK The DJ... I tried it again just stand-alone in Maschine with the "Like A Tiger Kit" patch and it seem to be ok. But in my sequence where I had 3 Session Guitarist tracks (I forgot to mention Prime Bass), the tempo changes. I'm happy to see you are seeing something EvilDragon on your system.... At least it confirms that the issue is not unique to me. Appreciate it ! ! !

    BTW: One may think it is CPU related, and maybe it is but the CPU indicator in Maschine is at the very bottom so I don't believe that's the issue. FWIW.

    I have the same issue in FL Studio 20.9. If a trigger the sequence manually, while the DAW transport is not running, everything plays in time. If I trigger the sequence while the DAW transport is active, the sequence speeds up and slows down and is unusable.

    Further experimentation shows that it only happens for me when the DAW tempo equals 140 BPM. If I go higher or lower it stays in sync. Even crazier: if I start play at 140BPM the sync is all over the place. If I start at a different BPM and then change it to 140 while playing, the sync remains correct.

    Anyway, I know how to avoid the problems for now. If all else fails I just copy the midi.

    Yeah, I'm having the same issue on FL Studio 20.9. I can't remember having this problem a couple of weeks ago when I first bought it. Anyone got a suggestion or a solution maybe?
