Absynth not matching correct BPM?

    Hi guys,

    Is there any reason why when I am holding down a midi key in Absynth, it is not playing the loop to the correct BPM as my project? My project is 100 bpm, and I have adjusted in the bpm section (as seen in the photo attached) and it's still out of time?

    Are you using Absynth stand alone or in a DAW? Because if so it would pick up the bpm of the host.

    Depends if a patch you loaded has any parameters with tempo sync enabled or not. Not all of them do.

    Sorry to highjack this thread, but do you know how I can set the BPM parameter so the default is 120 BPM instead of 100? Its a pain always having to change it.

    That's right. It also worth to check the Envelopes, they also maybe out of sync / free running.

    In VST mode there is a % sign besides the BPM label, i'm sure it means 100% BPM from the host, so you dont have to set the BPM in VST mode or change it in percent. If you like to save a preset for new sounds, just overwrite the NewSound.nabs in the Absynth application folder, it also saves the BPM.
