I have installed 5.1.1. Having a total nightmare trying to use timewarp. I called Tech Support and the guy there really didn’t understand what I was trying to do at all.
He said I need to tell Nuendo what the tempo of the audio is. Why??? This makes no sense at all.
Especially if you consider that there are about 6 tempo changes in the audio I want to stretch, and they are not all on bar lines.
If I put the audio into “musical” mode, it changes length. before I even use time warp . WTF?
Listen please, Steinberg, this is a major screw up. Time warp is one of the jewels in the crown of this software and it is broken.
I will try and explain what I want:
IMAGINE THIS PROJECT:
20 bars of midi, with various tempo changes.
The midi is a mock up of a string orchestra.
A real string orchestra is then recorded, exactly like the midi. But done on a Protools rig somewhere else. As BWavs.
I import the recordings into the project, using “place at origin”.
GREAT! All sounds good. The audio is in time with the midi. The click is in time too!
Ok, now my client changes their mind, and they now want the last 4 bars SLOWER. So I must TIMESTRETCH the last 4 bars.
I should be able to do this:
1 Put the audio files in musical mode.
2 Insert a tempo event at bar 16 using time warp tool.
3 drag bar 20 to the right using time warp, and have the last 4 bars (ie 16-20) of audio stretch WITH the project. Like it did in Nuendo 4l
I can’t even get off first base. I put the audio in musical mode and it changes length!!! Nuendo is “THINKING TOO HARD” and analysing the tempo of something that is should realise already, because the audio is already sitting on a timeline, with all the tempos there already.
OK I try my favourite workaround - Bounce. I bounce the audio. Sometimes this seems to iron out problems. But no, same result.
Tech support DO NOT understand what I am trying to do. They think I want to make my tempo match the audio. NO NO NO! I want to stretch the piece of music, tempo, bars, audio THE LOT.
What I must do now, is is the stretch tool (the select tool mode 3) and manually stretch without musical mode.
It’s MUSICAL MODE that is causing the problems. Why can the audio not be properly anchored to the project grid??
