Can I ask for some advice please?
I have a song that is freely played on MIDI piano - some significant slow downs, pauses, etc. I’ve used TimeWarp to to tweak the timing of this part (not to flatten it completely, but just to fix some timing errors to make it more “musical”). So now it’s freely-played, and has a click track that follows it perfectly. Just to clarify, because of all the tempo changes, it is about as far from “quantizing” as one can get.
Next, on a separate track, I’ve overdubbed a MIDI horn part on top of the MIDI piano part. As it turns out (surprise, surprise!), I’m a little bit off on the timing of the horn part, relative to the freely played MIDI piano part. So, I’d like to adjust the timing of the horn part to to the tempo of that freely played MIDI piano - so the horns are on the click track as well, for example.
That’s where I’m stuck - what’s the best way to make the horn part follow the piano part? I’ve tried using the MIDI editor to move around the notes in the horn part, but it doesn’t work well at all, it gets all out-of-timing sounding. If it were audio, I’d just use AudioWarp on the horns, but since it’s MIDI I’m not really sure the best way to go.
Thanks for any help!
