Clip Record not starting on beat 1

I use clips to live loop midi instruments with Live 9. I have my global quantize set to 1 bar. So when I'm ready to record I hit a button on my midi controller that is mapped to clip record and as long as I hit it before beat 1, it's supposed to start recording on beat 1.

I'm having a very intermittent problem where it will skip beat 1 and start recording on beat 2 or 3. I play live with a band so when this happens it really messes things up pretty bad. But it's happening so infrequently that its really hard to pinpoint what the issue is.

I don't think it's latency because none of my instruments are experiencing latency. and it always starts recording right on a beat, just not the beat it's supposed to start on.

One other issue I've had that is similar and might give some insight into this problem. I send a click track to my drummer but I don't use the built in click, I made something with a drum rack that lets me customize it more. It's just a 1 bar clip with a high pitch bongo on beat one and then a lower pitch bongo on beats 2-4. Every once in a while I'll notice that the drummer is playing off of beat 3, so I'll check and see that somehow that clip is starting over on beat 3. The clip settings are set to global though and my global setting is 1 bar. If I hit stop and then play again it usually fixes itself.

Any idea on what going on here?

Much appreciated.

Not a clue as I don't use Looper. You seem to have done everything right far as I know, so I'd make a bug report to support and see what they could do.
