Recording in ableton session view

I’m having showstopping issues trying to record in ableton’s session view. For some reason the arrangement view seems to work just fine. But when I go to session view it will only record part of the clip or it will have several bars of lag after pausing that notes are held out even though I’m not pressing them anymore. I’m having this issue with the piano overlay with an mpe midi map. However, I also have this problem with the innovators overlay.

That being said I am using a free vst (surge) to modulate using the midi cc. So maybe that’s the issue? Or maybe it’s ableton if the only thing I’m doing differently is changing from arrangement view to session view?
