I guess yes, sorry if I’m using the terms incorrectly.
The difference is that freezing the track just freezes the audio (sort of like “caching”) I actually do want to change the file late.
What I want is to actually CHANGE the midi file.
Perhaps it will help if I give a real world example:
- I recorded a piece without click.
- I had a bit of a timing issue, so I used the Wrap Grid (Musical events follow) tool to stretch it a bit to fix. Which changed the tempo data.
- Now I want to do tempo detection / tempo matching or something like that. It’s a problem - since there are already tempo marks in the tempo track. But if I remove them the timing issue when playing returns. Thus I want to APPLY the tempo marking onto the midi, and remove the tempo marking.
Hope it is clearer this way.
P.S. I know I can just not do step 2, but instead fix the timing issue by tempo detection the wrongly played piece + flattening the tempo retroactively. But let’s say I don’t want to do that because I find it easier to use the Wrap Grid (Musical events follow) tool.
