So here’s my question...What I love about Sylvan Esso is that the beat pocket is amazing - so gushy - but you can tell that in the first few bars it’s pushing JUST A LITTLE bit - it’s not gush, it’s just a little fast, out of tempo with her vocal loop - but sooner or later it all drops / quantizes together. Does anyone know if LIVE software has a safety net o quantize the loops (which might alter the pitch a little? Or drop a frame to maintain the pitch but speed it up just a smirdge? Sorry, I just love them so much and this is one of the reasons - because the pocket is sublime which is unusual for this type of music.
