I’m trying to use the function “Merge tempo from tapping” (Located in MIDI → Functions) to create a tempo map for a single stereo audio file (the song “Money” by Pink Floyd.
However, Cubase fails miserably at creating the correct tempo map. It misses every beat by about 50%. Here is how I can tell the function fails. After running the function, I play the three sounds: the reference audio track, the instrument track where I recorded the “tempo tap events”, and the metronome. When I hit play, the MIDI events play to the music’s beat, BUT the metronome sounds waaay off, to the point of sounding syncopated against the MIDI events and the music.
I remember that this was no issue because I could always run the function again and it would normally improve the results. However, on this specific project I’m working, Cubase pops an error when I try to run the function a second time. The error says:
“Tempo out of Range!”
This error only happens when there is a check on the box called “Begin at Bar Start” (located on the Merge Tempo from Tapping dialogue)
So, this leaves me with 2 questions:
- What does the error mean? What fix do I have to perform to be able to run the function a second time?
- How do I improve the accuracy of the function “Merge Tempo from Tapping”?
