I’m sure this should be straightforward but I always seem to have problems with this. Any help would be much appreciated!
I am trying to transcribe a drum part. To do this I do the following:
- Ascertain rough tempo of audio and set C6 to that.
- Create a MIDI track and key in what I think the part is. This might be created as individual bars that I can easily duplicate as necessary.
- Copy above and glue all bits together (just in case I want to go back).
- Import audio track.
- Check for descrepancies.
To do the latter I need the two tracks roughly in sync, e.g. so I can follow the score as I play the audio. This is not precision stuff!
I’ve tried using the ‘tempo detection panel’ to create a tempo track that follows the audio but it completely messes up the MIDI timing, i.e. bar lines are moved. This seems pretty stupid to me, but I don’t know how to stop it or what to do about it.
Almost certainly showing my ignorance here, for which I apologise. But I found no help in the manual…
