Hi guys, having huge trouble with importing my own loops into Clip-Mode. Everytime I start a loop with WARP activated I can hear a short double-click (very fast repeating of the first transient), which is annoying. This double-click is repeated everytime the SEQUENCE loop starts over.

My loops are cut perfectly and working flawless in all other DAWs. And they're working fine without WARP activated in the MPC. But Clip-Mode without WARP doesn't make much sense to me.

Any advice to get rid of these double-clicks?

I want to add that also the timing of the loops is totally messed up with active WARP. All my loops are playing together nicely without WARP, but as soon it's activated, the loops get out of timing. Even if the loop tempo matches the song tempo. For the moment clip mode turns out to be useless.

yeah, i had absolutely the same experience with warping my loops in standalone :/
couldn't use it.
i've reported it via bugreport, also made some comments on gs, without any luck, sadly. maybe you'll succeed and akai will fix it?

I don't think Elastique works in Linux (the standalone OS), and I assume the 'mpc' algorithm' was made in-house, hence the difference in quality. I doubt we'll ever see Elastique in standalone as it is licensed from Izotope, but hopefully the MPC algorithm can get tweaked over time. It might also be a processor issue, perhaps future hardware will address this.

I hope akai polishes the MPC/FORCE with another warp algorithm in standalone/linux. There is a lot of noise/artefacts when you really try stretching the tempo that seems dated by 2020 standards.

Critical for the akai force
A sweet upgrade for the MPC series
