Or are you talking about quantizing midi?

I’d say it sounds like what you’re trying to quantize is not lined up to the grid properly- IE tempo is matched to project tempo and first beat is coming in at the right place, at the beginning of a bar.
Thanks for your reply. Yup - re-recording it would be MUCH faster but I'm not the bass player so I don't want to go down that path unless I have to. Also, the bass part is just an example of the larger problem I was experiencing. I wanted to make sure I know how to fix this for other elements/ future scenarios as I suspected I was doing something wrong.

Your feedback about the quantize not being lined up to the grid is the issue. I was able to quantize the parts that had issues and I'm back in business.
