I want to record chords from my piano to the Chord track with the goal of generating a vocal harmony line. All is going well, except for the following.
The song is 80 bars in total. I want to add a harmony line from Bars 23 to 39. I can’t record chords into just those bars. It seems I need to start from Bar 1 or the chords are not recorded to the Chord track. How do I record chords for Bars 23 to 39 into the chord track? I don’t want to enter them manually with the little Xs either. I’m creating a specific vocal harmony based on my played chords.
I tried recording the cords for the entire song. I was able to generate chords for the harmony for Bars 23 to 39, but the whole vocal track was harmonized - not what I want. I tried silencing all the waves on either side of the Bar 23 to 39 range but I lost all vocal harmony.
Ideas welcome. Thanks…
When I first tried recording my chords, I was only using two notes - the third and the octave. I assume Cubase doesn’t consider those as full chords. I’m good with that.
When I silence the part of the vocal harmony track I don’t want, it silences the vocal source track as well. What am I doing wrong?
