    For a midi drum beat to go out of time?

    I could swear that when I recorded everything was on the beat, now when I listen back, after several times, it's out of time.
    Wow, now I feel really stupid. Thanks.

    I have made the mistake in the past where I drug a midi drum file to the timeline and accidentally expanded it by a beat. Kinda like the measure is 4/4 and I made the file 5/4. Then, without knowing I did that, I would copy it and of course, the beat would be way off. So check to be sure your beat is taking up only the part of teh measure you want it to. If the file is one measure of 4/4, then be sure it sits in the timeline in one measure.

    Also check that you have Snap turned on so it aligns to the measure bar.

    I have heard of the settings for swing/quantize in some DAW's would re-do the quantization when it was set certain ways and projects were closed or edited certain ways. Just hearsay but I would make sure any quantizing is turned off after every thing is in time.
