I’m working on a collaborative project with a Cubase user. I use Digital Perfomer on a Mac. For each song I create two WAV files for my collaborator, a click and a music mix. If he imports the files into a Cubase project that is not set to the same tempo as the song, then Cubase will time stretch the click track to conform to his tempo setting in Cubase. If I tell him the tempo of the song and he sets Cubase to that tempo the click seems to import fine. Here’s the issue: some of the tracks have tempo changes. I’ve sent him a MIDI file to import and the tempo map seems to play back correctly with the click generated by Cubase, but the audio click I sent is still getting warped somehow (not sure how exactly, as we aren’t physically working together, but he tells me it doesn’t line up).
So, what do I tell my collaborator to change in Cubase so that imported audio tracks don’t get automatically conformed to the metronome setting in Cubase? I’ve looked through the online manual but can’t seem to sort it out.
