· When I drag & drop the same tracks in Ableton Live 9, for some reason some tracks appear to be trimmed and/or do not line up exactly. I see how to click and drag to slide the tracks left & right, but Ableton seems to have a 'snap to grid' feature that makes it impossible for me to line up my beats with the bass and guitar.
· Quantise - like the dictionary definition - just means you are restricting your midi notes to an arbitrary amount. "Snap to grid" is the easiest way to think about it. In Live, you can choose the quantise amount by beats. 1 bar, a 16th note etc.
A long-standing feature request of Ableton Live users is the ability to snap breakpoints to the grid in Breakpoint Mode.

Live can receive either MIDI Clock or MIDI Timecode (MTC): MIDI Timecode is the recommended option if the external sequencer supports this, as MTC has a better resolution. However, MIDI Timecode does not transmit any tempo information. You'll need to set the tempo manually in Live to match the tempo of the master sequencer.
