When I bounce a track to a single wave file it offsets the entire file from the grid in a way that makes it very difficult to perfectly realign it. Also tried to just mixdown the single track with all processing off, same thing. Something is adding extra time to the front end of the wave file for some reason.
could you please go to Preferences-> Options tab, uncheck “Move mixdown file according on plugins latency” and check if the problem persists?
This option should be ignored when bouncing a single track, so if this solution works we have a clue on where the problem is.
If the problem persists, could you zip and send the song folder to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a list of actions that lead to the issue?
Please let me know.
I changed the setting and the problem still persists.
