I confirmed all tracks are in musical mode but when I adjust project to follow tempo & bump the tempo up, things are simply NOT aligning.
I’m wondering, could this problem be the result of …because while the project plays well with my original tempo track / click at 93.8 BPM …not every instrument “by choice” (ie: kick or snare or bass etc) is perfectly “on the grid” ?
In other words,
I originally nudged a kick or snare or whatever back or forth a hair on the Original tempo grid to adjust for feel …& then later at mix time realized the song would be better if the tempo was bumped up a bit.
I then went into Musical mode and adjusted the project to follow tempo, and bumped BPM up to 97 BPM …but things do not line up correctly.
All of the audio files being used MUST have their original tempo entered correctly in the Tempo field in the Pool. Most,but not all, commercially sold samples have that info embedded. If the file/sample is from a source (including another song) that does not embed tempo, you will have to find and enter it for things to work as they should.
what do you mean by this? Did you work initially without the tempo track on?
It looks like you should start with making a simple test project, just to help you understand how the tempo track works with midi and audio events.
See if you can replicate the same problem.
I worked initially “with the click on and set to 93.8 bpm”. I did not however insert an actual “tempo track” till after recording further tracks and realizing I might want to bump it up a few bpm’s.
Would be thankful If any kind folks could weigh in, let me ask this way…
If one uses a “click as a guide but” tends to NOT follow exactly or, line up tracks exactly on the bars/beats grid (ie; for feel a little before or ahead at times)… Is there Then a way to slightly speed up or, slow down ones tracks at a later time ?
It seemingly does not work for me to go into musical mode and make broad changes as I said, IF my tracks are very close yet, not “synced perfectly” to the grid to begin with.
Maybe there’s a 3rd party plug or…? Some way of doing these full track tempo tweaks WITHOUT aquiessing to lining all tracks up to grid ?
Maybe I’m missing something and apologies as I’m not super deep into many of NU functionality but, Please share thoughts. ie; help!
It’s important for me as a mixer to be able to bump up or down the bpm a few but, again, Not all tracks I’m working with followed the tempo click perfectly to begin with…IF at all.
Select your audio events… go to Audio ->Advanced -> Set Definition from tempo -> (Check on “save definition in project only & set all tracks to musical time base” ) --> OK … Try changing the tempo after doing this.
To the OP - can be more specific in exactly what’s happening? I’m hunting down a bug related to Cubase not properly writing tempo definitions to audio files, but on PC only; I just came from the Mac side where this works fine, but not on PC. I’m going to probably make a video about the issue and post shortly.
I believe “are 74” has the closest answer.
If his suggestion does not work, try this:
Take tracks OUT of musical mode
Select one drum track, preferably Kick Drum or Overheads
Go to Project Tempo Detect and detect, don’t change any default settings
Put all remaining tracks in Musical Mode
Delete all the points in tempo detect if you wish, and just type in the new tempo,
or simply raise the temp on all detection points- usually I prefer to flat line it if I am
recording extra instruments.
I have done this quite a few times in several projects.
PS you also need to put in your signature at the down beat
