Default Beat Detective Bug? 7.4.1

Hi Guys,

I am currently doing some editing on a session and needed to use beat detective to match the performance from an electric piano to a track of Wurlizer.

I have separated the notes already in BD and then have extracted a groove from the Wurlizer track, taking great care that it was detected properly, then saving it to the groove clipboard. Then I have moved my selection up to the Electric Piano track and run region conform selecting the groove clipboard as the source.

The results are not even a close match, infact some of the notes move further out of time than they were to start with.

Just to clarify: the two performances, whilst on separate instruments, are the same monophonic rhythmical pattern of notes and they were fairly well matched to start with. It just needed a little tighten up.

Thinking I was missing something, I rang Digi who couldn't explain why this was happening and confirmed I have been doing everything correctly. They asked me to send a copy of the session to them for analysis, but unfortunately due to copyright reasons I am unable to do so and am too busy to mock up another session for them.

I was just wondering if anyone else has had any trouble with beat detective since HD 7.4 - I recall it working fine when I was doing something similar about 6 months ago in 7.2.

One more thing: if I am conforming/quantizing to the grid then it seems to be fine, it is only the grooves which cause it to play up.

Thanks in advance for any input.
