I do this if I think it better preserves the intended rhythmic feel,
and then trigger the loop "early" for the more complex arrangements.
(also, I use a similar technique on the rare occasions that I midi control
my lex JamMan, as it responds quite slowly )
I think Zoe Keating commonly starts loops on the upbeat (Zoe?)
...but as you're probably realizing, you just need to practice recording
and teach your foot to work a bit faster.
I don't know if the LP1 allows you to instantly wipe a loop and record a
like the edp does, but that's the best way.
Just keep re-recording over and over again till it starts working for you.
Oh, and make sure you're not using a midi-controller that has latency.
hope that helps somewhat
