Hi. I have a track of MIDI, not recorded to a metronome and in fact varying in tempo quite significantly (intentionally). I now want to build a tempo map and, in doing so, align the right notes with the start of the bars but keep the speed I played at. I’ve had a look at the two prescribed methods for doing this but it’s not working out and I’m wondering if anyone has any advice on what must be a fairly common procedure.
Project Ruler: Seconds, Time Linear
Original “Tempo”: 145 bpm
- I built a Tap Tempo track as per manual, consisting of just the bass notes of the recorded MIDI.
- Select All
- Merge Tempo From Tapping
- Switch on Tempo Track
It plays back slow. If I turn the Tempo Track off then I get back the speed I played at. NSG.
- First, I have to switch Tempo Track on, at which point the bpm goes to 120 and won’t let me change it!
Using the Tempo Tap track previously created for simplicity:
- With the Warp Tool (editor ruler displaying Bars & Beats), anchor the first beat to bar 5 (where it is anyway).
Seems simple enough but the Piano track soon gets out of synch, playing much slower than it should. You can see this in the Project Window - the Piano and Tap Tempo tracks are visibly way out of line. NSG either.
Been on it for a while and can’t suss it. What am I doing wrong?
