I came across a comment in response to a YouTube video about getting the tempo for things in Cubase:
It’s WAY faster and easier to do this by tapping along with the downbeat on a MIDI keyboard or drum pad, and then using the > convert MIDI to tempo track function in the MIDI menu> . You can get the whole thing done in the time it takes to play back the song.
I am trying to find this function - but it is nowhere to be found in C6, for me. I looked everywhere I could think of, there is no option in the MIDI menu, or anywhere for that matter. Is this still possible to do? I have a track I want to map out but the Tempo Detection feature isn’t working properly on it (bad quality audio). I have recorded the MIDI hits on the downbeats for the entire song already.
Also, I tried taking those MIDI hits, sending them to a drum VSTi, bouncing the audio of that out (a snare hit on every downbeat), then doing Tempo Detection on that. However, I got the error saying something about it detecting a major tempo change and it couldn’t go farther than that point, so only about 1/5 of the song was mapped.
