I’m trying to drop a reference song (at about 127 bpm) into my 125 bpm project.
I want the reference song to be tempo adjusted and locked to the 125 bpm project.
I followed Greg Ondo’s excellent tutorial on it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c13UP4lrYkg
- Select the reference song track and choose Project -> Tempo Detection…
- Change time signature from its default set 1/4 to 4/4.
- Select the track and choose Audio -> Advanced -> Set Definition from Tempo…
Now Cubase changes its tempo to match the Tempo Track based on the variations in the reference song.
Now to have it do the opposite, warp the reference song to match a fixed tempo, I should only have to remove the data on the Tempo Track, or deactivate the Tempo Track. Right?
So I do that.
Either way, while the reference song now does indeed lock to the fixed tempo as it should, the rest of my tracks are somehow offbeat, not looping correctly, etc.
How is this possible?
This doesn’t make sense because the tempo, at this point, is fixed and is the same tempo as when they were playing back fine. VSTi’s (some frozen, some not) do not play like they originally did.
Again, same fixed tempo as before I started all this. So nothing, for them, should have changed, right?
Only that one reference song that I applied the Set Def. from Tempo on should be affected by all this, correct?
