Hi, and welcome.

You didn't say what instrument you play.  The attack characteristics  
of your instrument could influence your approach here.

If you instrument has a fast attack -- say a percussion instrument,  
guitar, or piano then you could spend some time to coordinate your  
foot-pedal press with your starting note so that the first beat and  
the start of the loop are in the same place.  (I'm assuming you use a  
footpedal to send midi messages to the LP1).

Another technique is to play on beat 2 of your loop... then play beat  
1 when you switch to overdub mode.  I use this technique quite a bit.

Also, check our noise-gate settings on the LP1. If the threshold is  
too loud then the start of your note may be cut off, too.
