I have tried using Tempo Detection on several tracks that were recorded live without a click track (the reason Tempo Detection was invented). These tracks naturally fluctuate in tempo but not excessively (I can tap a steady beat to them with no problem).
Even though Tempo Detection does pick up the overall tempo, and creates many points indictating it is adjusting to every beat, it does not seem to follow tempo fluctuations - as the YouTube video shows and documention suggests. It seems to create an overall straight line tempo that does not follow the audio’s drift (the “smooth tempo” function makes this worse).
I understand there are limits to what Tempo Detection can track and it clearly shows that when the dialog pops up saying their were “multiple tempos detected”, etc. But even when it does create the entire tempo map the metronome clicks I hear afterwords do not stay locked on to the audio tempo. At times it is right on but then drifts ahead/behind then comes back in time again.
I have tried with some success to split the tracks and apply tempo detection to one section at a time. Sometimes that works and other times it just makes a bigger mess - and almost always creates glitches at the section breaks.
Any tips on how to use this tool such that it “locks on” to the audio better? I can’t use it as-is.
