Tempo: 118
Timing Correct: 1/16 (240) with a Swing of 75%
Sound Used: High Hat
Start Time: First Beat until the end.
Bar: 4 Bars/Measure
Results: Sounds exactly like recorded after record is disengaged.



Did you fill every 16th? Have you tried NOTE REPEAT?

Yes and Yes. Perhaps you should record a video of your process. The bug won't be fixed but it would be interesting to see what your bug looks like.

It's not a bug.

1/8 with 75% swing will give you 1/4 notes
1/16 with 75% swing will give you 1/8 notes
1/32 with 75% swing will give you 1/16 notes
1/64 with 75% swing will give you 1/32 notes.

Thanks CharlesRandolph, that's what I needed to know.

I have one final question about this.
Is the behavior shown in the video below also normal?

I only played some sloppy manual 16th notes here (TIMING CORRECT is ON) and the MPC itself is the one erasing them.

Not normal unless the Erase button is pressed and you hit the pad, while in record/overdub.

Forgot to mention this only occurs with 75% swing.

No idea on this one. Best way is to turn off the timing correct and use your own timing.

Do you have the white or blue mpc 4k?

For this problem, white or blue won’t matter.
