Vic - Thank you.
You are one of those people - and there are a few here - who, when somebody has a complicated issue, takes the time to jump in and offer a detailed solution.
And you seem to have an extremely in depth understanding of Cubase.
And . . .your solution worked.
But I kept thinking there must be some way to do it automatically with “Process Tempo”.
I used your method and recorded the results and then backed up and wasted a lot of time.
With the inspiration from your approach I ended up with this:
- Made sure all Tracks were in Linear mode.
- Set the ruler to seconds and noted the duration from the first to the last Tempo node. Also noted the total number of Beats (this was 4/4 with 2 measures of 5/4 which I deleted cause I didn’t want to deal with that).
- Set the Marker Track to Linear and dropped a marker at the start and end of this section - just thought I might need them - maybe to reset the Locators.
- Set the Locators to the Start and End points, also.
- Deleted all the Tempo Nodes except for the first and last.
- Opened Process Tempo. At this point the process range already showed the correct number of beats - so I simply set the “New Range” for the correct time duration and processed.
It worked. And material following was still in time.
I’m not 100% percent clear on the method - but I think it will work in most situations with some variation as to “Process Range” and “New Range” Settings.
Thanks Again for your help!
