I want to import to Cubase the tempo maps detected within Melodyne Stand Alone. Melodyne exports tempo maps as MIDI files.
The issue: Cubase does not detect tempo from MIDI files. Cubase only imports tempo as *.smt files (which apparently is a kind of XML specific for Cubase)
So, if I try to Import Melodyne’s tempo map…
- …from the Import tempo track menu: cubase pops an error. “This file is not valid!” (the exclamation mark tells me it was even stupid to try )
- …from the Import MIDI menu: nothing happens. A blank MIDI track is created and the tempo track remains unchanged.
I know, I know (I know) Cubase detects tempo. But let’s just say, for arguments sake, that there is benefit to be gained from Melodyne’s tempo map (regardless of the reason). Please let’s not make this post into an argument over which is better. Both Melodyne and Cubase detect tempo properly. But I need the tempo map from Melodyne. I need it imported into Cubase. I just do.
Thank you for any pointers you might have. I already emailed Celemony support, with a 99.9% chance that I will be directed to Steinberg.
