Following your own recipe… once the transfer as been completed, all you need to do is change the tempo in Cubase, and Melodyne will follow (so in this particular case, where you aren’t using Melodyne to also change any pitches, you aren’t really gaining anything from just putting the audio clip into Musical Mode, and doing it directly in Cubase anyways! ).
Melodyne itself can lengthen and/or move “blobs” (even when grouped), but AFAIK, does not “stretch” an ensemble of them (as if the selection were a single event to be strectched)
If you say that “nothing was happening”, that is probably because the timing was “snapped” to the grid (try while holding down the Alt key )
Well, now in standalone, if I import a file, it gets seperated into notes (blobs…lol) - like in the Mel vid. Didn’t do that before - maybe that’s b/c I had Cubase open at the time. But within Cubase, nothing is happening - even if I change the tempo in either musical mode, or linear. Mel does not follow the tempo. And the audio is not seperated into notes either - it’s one blob. I get the snap to grid thing, but holding alt doesn’t help; that’s not the issue.
