Timing of some patterns in session guitar don't fit in time wise. They leak into the next

measure.

    Per the documentation that comes with Session Guitarist they have several approaches for how to play the auto chord patterns. The easiest in 4/4 time is to end playing the chord on 4 or a little after and start playing the next chord slightly before the start of the next measure and is consistent with the time it would take a live guitar player to switch chords. This keeps everything aligned with the measures. But they also outline some other approaches as well.

    Sustain pedal? Tempo changes within your timeline?

    No not those things Nothing that I can find. And the problem is inconsistent. Sometimes they mesh ut most of the time they don't. I tried to shorten the patterns by 2 betas, bubt of course that throws the whole track off.

    @Squeezebox Waht library is it exactly, there are a lot of different Session Guitarist libraries. What is your operating system? Could you reproduce the issue in a small Ableton project, possibly only with one session guitar track, zip it and post it here?
