What am I doing Wrong?

Hello all, I am trying to set up a sequence but when I use anything other than play full sequence, everything gets out of sync with the music. I don't know what I am doing wrong but I have to listen to everything from the beginning each time as I am programming. I am using the latest software version.

Sounds like you are using a variable bit rate MP3 file. The ideal situation is to sequence against a .wav file, or at least a constant bit rate MP3.

Here are the instructions for one way to make constant bit rate MP3 files:

fastgnat,

KLB nailed the problem, I had the same issue and using the Audacity audio editor to convert the mp3 to wav solved the problem.

The document link klb sent is dated, when you get to the download page at sourceforge, the LAME wave converter is a download option there. No need to go to a different site.

Thanks, I'll try that tonight. I bet that is also why I cannot copy and paste something to repeat through to the end of the sequence. It always gets out of time with the music.
