Pro Tools Answers Episodes 13, 14 and 16 – Matching Tempos
Dave, Andy and Anders cover a question from Dana who wanted to match the tempo of his Pro Tools Session to the tempo of imported audio.
He wanted to acheive this using Beat Detective.
The boys show users exactly the best way to do this, why Beat Detective isn’t the right tool for this task, what Beat Detective is for and a bunch of other techniques involving Elastic Audio to match tempos.
Episode #13 (Codename 2021.5 because Anders is a bit weird)
In this strangely numbered episode (!), Dave shows users the best way to create a tempo map from an imported audio track.
Andy and Anders go into detail about using Elastic Audio manually AND automatically to have Elastic Audio match the tempo of imported audio to the session’s tempo.
Sewing up the 3 part series on matching tempos, Andy and Anders go into detail about where Beat Detective excels in matching groove of recorded audio, how Beat Detective is not the best tool for creating a tempo map for an entire song, and how to make a song containing tempo changes all one tempo.
