Topic: Keep SAMPLER-LOOP (always) in SYNC
Hi all

Is there a way to keep a LOOP (in the sampler) ALWAYS in SYNC with the focused (master) deck, also when switching from one deck to another ?
Let me explain:
Deck 1 -> 98 BPM song playing.
Deck 1 SAMPLER PADS -> 95 BPM sample (set as LOOP) (set to 'Sync-Lock') starts in SYNC (so is speed-up to 98 BPM).
Sample (LOOP) plays nicely in SYNC with Deck 1 song.
Load 100 BPM song in deck 2 and push SYNC to SYNC up with Deck 1 (song is Slowed-down to 98 BPM).
Start Deck 2 (LOOP is still in SYNC) and pull fader Deck 1 down and stop the song.
Now Deck 2 is MASTER/Output deck (and LOOP from Deck 1 SAMPLER still playing).
I speed Deck 2 up to it's normal speed (100 BPM) but the LOOP in SAMPLER from Deck 1 stays at 98 BPM (so doesn't SYNC (lock) to tempo of Deck 2) and therefore goes out of SYNC.

Al tough, when I play a song in a deck and start a LOOP in the Sampler of the same deck, it stays in SYNC when adjusting tempo.
It seems the LOOP is only kept in SYNC when it's played on the same deck (Sampler PAD), not kept in SYNC with the opposite deck, when this one is focused (master).

I tried to set the various LOOP settings in Sample Editor (FLAT, PITCHED, SYNC-START, SYNC-LOCK). All gave the same result.

Is there a way to keep a LOOP (in Sampler) ALWAYS in SYNC with the active/focused/output deck, no matter if the LOOP is played in Sampler PADS of deck 1 or 2 and always follows (locks) the tempo to the playing (active/focused/output deck) when adjusting speed ?

Are you sure Deck 2 becomes MASTER ?
It works fine here when masterdeck is in auto-mode and use Samples with Mode:Loop and Loop:Sync-Lock

Are you using a skin that shows the status of MASTER ? If not, map custom buttons on both sides as .. masterdeck .. and see what u get when u stop Deck 1.

EDIT. Ah i see now. You probably trigger the samples from the Left Deck pad page and not from the Sampler view of Browser. In this case, yes, you get what you reported.

If you are using a controller, you can set samplerOutputToTriggerDeck to No to make the sampler not depend on the deck it was triggered from.
It does require that you have a separate sampler output or a controller software mixer (master/headphones output configuration)
