Having been a long term iPad owner I am used to the waveforms staying in sync when both tracks are playing, I.e. beat 1 on track A lines up with beat 1 on track B, and then all the beats stay in sync throughout, 1 matches 1, 2 matches 2, 3 matches 3 etc…
This is regardless of the beat sync interval being set to 1 or 4, so I know my issue is not due to that setting.
The problem I have is that on my new M1 MBP sometimes the waveforms are in sync and sometimes they are both running at different speeds only meeting and matching on the 1st beat of a bar.
Sometimes they stay synced up and sometimes they both run at different speeds with no real way of knowing which mood they’ll be in when I hit play….
Any clues / hints / advice / tips etc as to how I can make them always stay in sync on each beat welcomed!
I have been experiencing this exact same problem for a while now as well. For me it seems to be isolated to certain tracks. In particular acapellas played alongside the full versions of the tracks. I reported this to tech support months ago and was told this was normal sync behavior. I disagree…
Completely agree it is random. I am having same issue. Never had this issue on my olde MBP 16 i9 but happening more regularly on new MBP M1 Max - happened mid set and waveforms never pulled back into sync but the beat sync seemed to be correct.

This is the same issue that I have brought up here.
In your video the waveforms are doing what I described, the actual track bpm is staying in sync, and if you notice they do sync up on the 1st beat of each bar but apart from that they both run at different speeds.
This makes all manner of things really difficult to time as it’s hard making sense of what’s going on.
You haven’t mentioned in your post but are you by any chance using a new M1 MBP 2021? Those of who have experienced this behaviour all seem to be on the new hardware.
Have you noticed any patterns emerging as to when this happens? For me it’s totally random and one day it’ll go ‘all over the place’ and the next the exact same songs stay in sync perfectly. This makes it even harder to try and pinpoint the exact cause of the problem.
If you do notice any trend though, please let us know.
Maybe if one of the mods can merge these two threads together so we can track any progress on this bug in the same place?
In the meantime, we feel your pain and hopefully this can get sorted in a future update.
