Hello guys - long time no post, so here goes. This is driving me nuts!
Cubase 6.5.5 on XP
The problem; I have some backing vocals that I want to copy into a different version of a song. The BV in question are in a song where there is a small tempo map change every beat (quarter note), whereas the other version is fixed at 107. The first one is in the 105 to 107 range. So how do I copy them over and align things up without dragging and guessing? This is what I am trying to do …
Insert hitpoints on EVERY BEAT. This has so far proved to be impossible. How do you achieve this because when I drag a hitpoint to the cursor (on a beat, say 22.214.171.124), it will snap to either 126.96.36.199 or even 188.8.131.52. How irritating is this? I don’t have the zero crossing selected, just the snap. Also, how do you remove unwanted hitpoints? Are you stuck with them whether you like it or not?
Create Warp Tabs from the every beat hitpoints
Copy and paste the BV track into the other project
Open sample Editor, select Free Warp and snap the Warp Tabs to the new beat position.
It takes AGES and, as I said above, I cannot get it to occur precisely. Someone please rescue me from this Hitpoint Hell!
