i find it much more convienient to have the click/metronome as an audio track
I currently have to route the click to an output and record it, chop it, then repeat…
now i realise i could create a midi track, and use a drum vsti … but its just more hassle.
i’d like if possible a “generate 1 bar audio click” which takes the tempo from and generates a 1 bar audio click on a new mono audio channel named “clicktrack”
if the track has a tempo map then something else would need to be done…
for me having it as an audio track has benefits…
- easier to set the exact level using the mixer (rather than needing to go into transport/metronome setup, then adjust 2 sliders hi/lo)
easy to set exact start & end points (so that no bleed of click through headphones at the end of a take)
easy to fade for quieter sections (again to save bleed)
easy to include in a mixdown for drummer to rehearse etc.
