View Full Version : Tempo/Beat Grid "holes" (revisited)

So I do the following:
1. Record a click.
2. Accurately map out all measures from 1 to 126.
3. Drummer has time problems "here and there" which I can now easily see by the Click. I can also figure out where it should be.
4. I Cut an out of time section as best as I can and snap it to the correct grid which moves the section thereby creating a "hole"
What do I do with the newly created empty space? (legally) Fading gets rid of a pop but if a Drum part is moved what fills that empty spot?

OK I'm dumb but I don't get it.

If the snare hit was late in time from the kick drum it means you have to put it forward in the grid creating that "hole".

All the drums are grouped. I cut and move the snare to the left. What I do is then is use the trimmer tool to open up the front of the kick (using the kick as a reference) dragging it to the left until I have a gap only a couple of samples long. This is doubling the decay of the snare which is rarely noticable. If you do hear something unnatural try a batch crossfade.

To avoid pops on the open regions, open preferences and set your "region fade in/out" to 3. This puts an automatic 3 millisecond fade out & in on open regions. This pref allows to cut anywhere through the waveform and never worry about clicks and pops again as long there is a space of at least one sample between the regions.

Check it out.
