I tried looping a single bar in a MIDI track. After the first pass, it skips the first half of the bar on every pass. If I change my prefs to “loop is a transport mode”, the playhead loops, but I can hear that Ardour actually plays straight through the region instead of actually looping. Is this something I can fix somehow?
I also notice that the transport time counter indicates looping, but again, what I actually hear is not a loop - just a straight playthrough.
Also tried increasing the length of the loop, which made no difference.
Don’t know if this is related, but while using “loop is a transport mode,” I’ve noticed that if I change the length of the loop, I have to deselect and reselect the loop button in order for looping to occur (albeit not actually looping as described above.)
One more thing: when not using “play loop is a transport mode,” while the loop works, it still skips the first half of the first bar if the loop is longer than one bar.
