I’m curious about this issue because I have honestly done this successfully thousands of times with no trouble, and now I am starting to question my own sanity because C7 is acting weird ever since I updated to 7.04.
I have a drum part that I want to get grid-aligned and tempo-matched and all that.
- I record the part in through my audio interface
- I open the recorded event in the Sample Editor
- I click “Definition” in the inspector
- I click “Manual Adjust” in the inspector
- I drag the first line right before the first transient in order to “Set grid start”. When I do this, the “1” of the sample editor shifts back and forth as I drag the line around, as expected. Everything is cool thus far.
- My grid is set to “1/4” and the default tempo (for this example) is 120. The recorded drum part is around 122. Based on this, when I move my mouse over the audio waveform, I see 3 light-blue lines appear between every two dark blue lines (at 120, so not lined up to my beat). Again, this is expected since I haven’t stretched the grid yet.
- I click and drag on one of the dark lines (e.g., beat 1 of bar 5) to line the grid up with my drum beat. NORMALLY, this would compress or expand the distance between each of the blue lines, increasing or decreasing the tempo. However, the sample editor ruler doesn’t change anymore. The tempo updates correctly, but the ruler stays exactly where it is (stuck to the 120 grid). The blue lines (that appear during Manual Adjust) don’t move.
Strangely enough, if I mouse over the audio, I will see the light blue and dark blue bars (with the messages “set beat position” and “stretch grid” appearing respectively) in the correct place, lined up with the audio beat as desired. The problem is that the sample editor ruler, and the associated static blue lines, do not correctly update. It is also worth noting that if I change the project tempo, the sample editor ruler DOES change.
Have I messed up an option somewhere? This used to work, but now it doesn’t. I haven’t seen anything in the manual about this. Nor have I read anything online about it. Does this sound familiar?
