Currently recording an audio bass line. I have quantized the recording, however some of the quantization is a little out / rigid compared to where I would like the note to fall. I am not sure how to rectify this and would appreciate any advice please.
Specifically I would like to understand how I can move any notes from a timing perspective and how I can affect this (by stretching / contracting note duration as well as its position chronologically within the song) on a note by note basis. Also, if I have hit a bum note or I want to change the note to a higher/ lower note instead, is there a way to fix this? I have seen this happen with the vocal editing/ pitch correction but I don’t know whether there is an equivalent for bass, or whether I should be running the bass programme through the vocal editing software instead maybe?
Yes, you’re on to something there: I often use VariAudio for bass note correction (or any monophonic signal really). It works great, not only for pitch bit also timing - note length and start/end adjustment.
Thanks, I will give it a go… though was using Cubase Artist 7, which doesn’t include VariAudio - I had only seen it in action on YouTube and so only now realised that I don’t actually have it with my current package. So, am downloading and upgrading as we speak to Cubase 8!
