This is strange and annoying. At first i thought i had something wrong but everything else syncs.

Agree 100%. I wonder if this is something they can do with a software update?

I use an Expert Sleepers USAMO and my OB-6 is rock solid tight.

in my case midi clock comes from the tempest, so it has nothing to do with clock jitter from a daw anyway. and usamo can not change the sync behaviour of the arpeggiator i think. i use a mutable instruments midipal as workaround, but to honest, it's quite annoying that you need an extra device to have a beatsynced arpeggiator on your new 2,5k synthesizer.

Rock solid midi clock sync here as well. Beat Sync is not midi clock sync. Beat Sync has to do with how the Arp/Seq triggers a new chord in the middle of a beat/bar. Beat sync keeps the Arp/Seq in time even when your performance is slightly off. This feature is especially helpful in live settings. This has been a feature request for some time on the P6/P2 forums. Surprising. So there's that...

I'm not sure if I understand correctly but tonight I has jamming out with my OB-6 as the master midi clock and the Korg Monologue and an Alesis SR-16 drum Machine as slaves. I was playing with the arpegiator on my OB-6 for a couple of hours and it was perfectly in sync with the other two modules.
