I’m not sure how many notes you want to move, Larry. If it’s just a few, then give melodyne a try and see if you
get a quick and satisfactory result.
I’ve found, and especially when using a midi drum track but the other tracks are imperfect guitar/vocal tracks,
that I get a better result by simply retracking the offending section. Be sure to warm up on bass, then punch in enough of the part to ‘get your groove on’, then try to fix it naturally. I can understand that an engineer, once the band has left the studio, would have no choice but to fix the part using an editor - but since you’re doing all the playing - why not simply try to get it right at the source?
I’m basing this on the frustrating results I got playing around with vocal phrasings/timing in variaudio. Quantizing to note values mostly didn’t work, and trying to stretch the notes and tweak the melodies by ear rarely yielded a good result.
Besides, playing it again is always more fun than poking around in an editor, isn’t it?
