I have a couple of hand entered midi tracks where the notes are all snapped to the grid. Then I had a part played against those tracks and there is a slight variation in the played part vs. the original midi parts.
I want to have the midi parts match up to the more fluid played part. So I used Tempo Detection on the played part and that worked fine - the grid now aligns with all the slight variations in the playing. However I thought that this would also adjust the timing on the midi tracks, but it didn’t. Now midi notes that were initially exactly on the grid are not exactly on the grid. Likewise the midi parts don’t begin and end on bar lines where they initially did.
Looking closer I found that the midi tracks, which were initially set to musical mode, were now set to linear mode. It appears that the tempo detection process changed the mode . So it turns out the midi notes are at the same time location as before and their positions relative to the played part hasn’t changed. Not my intention at all.
Is there any way I can use Tempo Detection to set the grid to follow the played part AND have the midi data retain its position relative to the musical grid and not the linear timeline?
