actually I tried to use X FORM on a couple of tracks , maybe 10 bars and PT crashed on me twice and waited so long....and never got even closer to finish.
so what is the deal???
maybe some tips??
I use polyphonic on everything.
Higher sample rates sound better to me.
When i get done I always used X-Form rendering... it makes it sound much better... I consider the "Modes" for preview and editing purposes only... I sometimes leave my computer on in the editing room and track other projects/songs in another studio.
Elastic Audio is really great for pocketing an already pretty darn good performance... If there are easily audible playing errors, edit the sections by hand then use elastic audio to tighten the whole performance.
Don't force it to do extreme stetches!
Tracking things well with plenty of separation helps tremendously.
Mono tracks (One mic on an acoustic guitar) sound a lot better elasticized than most stereo techniques (I always seem to have the best results with XY or Mid-Side.... not as good with spaced pair or ORTF). Most of the problems come from EA analyzing each track in a stereo pair differently and thus stretches them differently, thus phasing.... If you are doing stereo things apply the same warp to each side.
Bass always works very will for me with very little dicking around with the controls.
Play around with the "window" controls in the plugin.
