ableton 10 mp3 export shift
Yes that is correct. Encoding to an mp3 will always add a little bit of time before the audio starts. This is not an Ableton Issue. Encoding files to mp3 in other programs produce the same result. If that little bit of space before the audio is a problem you can do one of two things. First, export to wave instead of mp3. Second, export to mp3 and when you import them back select all tracks and move the starting point upto the beginning of the audio wave form.
