I’m editing a stereo song.
My steps are:
- Tempo Detection (the song was recorded live so this gives me lots of tempo track points with subtle differences every beat)
- Set Definition From Tempo (the tempo track information is know embedded in the audio event)
- Set the audio event to Musical Mode
Now, I want to create a ritardando towards the end of the song by changing the tempo track, which works great, but I wonder if the audio quality of the rest of the song, where the tempo remains unchanged, is impacted at all…
SO MY QUESTION: If I don’t change the tempo track after setting definition from tempo, is there no time-stretching going on at all (since the tempo track points and tempo definition of the musical mode audio event are the same) or is the time stretching process still trying to keep in time with the fluctuating tempo track from beat to beat, thereby impacting audio quality, albeit slightly.
Slightly theoretical question maybe, but very curious about this…
