My old 404sx died a few months ago and I just got a new one. I've used a 404 for a long time and can't figure out what's up with my loops on this new one. I always resample the number of bars I want, but I leave an extra kick from the next bar so that I can reverse it and fiddle with the end time so that as soon as I hear the sucking sound of the kick is gone, I know my loop is perfect. But on this new one I just got, the timing of the loop will be perfect, but there's always a duck in volume right before the loop comes around again. I've tried making multiple loops from different samples and it's always there. Never had this problem before, does anyone know what's up? The silence at the end of the loop makes it sound off, even though it isn't. It won't play through seamlessly.

Sounds strange man. Do you have a homies SP you could run your loops through (off your SD)? That way you can find out if it's the loops or the SP.

Hey, I have actually always had this same issue with my 404sx, and I got mine brand new. I will set my mark in and out points for a sample, and then I put it on loop to see if the timing is right, and I often need to adjust my end point to get the loop to be in time.

A lot of times, after I finely adjust my end point- especially if it is a melodic sample (basically anything besides a drum break)- I get this dip in sound right at the end of the loop, and even though the timing of the loop is right, the dip in the sound makes it sound "off".

I think it has something to do with how the machine cuts off the samples when you finely adjust the start and end points. Sorry I don't have a solution, but I just wanted to throw it out there that I have always found this to be an issue when I chop samples and loop them on the 404sx. But if you didn't have problems with it before, then that is strange.

I would try what misterlitty said if you can, but another suggestion is to dump your loop into a daw and see what the waveform looks like, then try to loop it in your daw and see if you can get rid of the dip in sound at the end, without the loop getting out of time. I might try that myself when I come across this issue again.
