Slaving PT to MPC... tracks are off...

I slave PT to my MPC 5000... the tracks sound fine but when the loop comes back around it just sounds off... My guess is because the tempos are slightly different in PT and the MPC... Like 89 bpm in MPC is really like 89.3 in PRO TOOLS even tho they are both set to 89bpm.... I tried making PT the master and MPC the slave but the track is even more off when I do it that way.... whats a way to prevent this??

try a preroll of two bars before the actual record start.. you can give your mpc or PT system time to sync by doing so....
