Hi - for some reason my tempo track had wild and crazy variations in it (i.e., wasn’t anywhere close to one tempo) when I recorded a piano intro there. One of my plugs required a flat tempo, and trying to flatten the tempo track caused me a world of hurt. As a matter of fact I gave up, and rerecorded after setting the tempo to the right value (and playing along with a drum VSTi as a guide).
But I’m sure it’s going to happen again, so I thought I’d ask for some advice please.
What I first tried to do was just erase all the tempo changes (in the MIDI editor that shows the tempo values in yellow at the top, sorry I don’t remember the name, it’s the one that turns the ruler brown). This of course didn’t work, the MIDI played back with timing all wrong.
Then (after erasing all the values, and setting an initial tempo value equal to the tempo of the music when played correctly ) I applied time warp. I felt sure this would work, but it didn’t! The music played back very out of time, I don’t know why. .
Though I’d be interested in knowing why that didn’t work, really I just want to know how I can back out of that problem if (when) it happens again.
Thanks for any thoughts!
