Tab to transient help (PT question)

Hi guys,

I probably should be asking the DUC but I'll start here first. Does anyone know how to change the sensitivity of the tab to transients function in Pro Tools? Some times it misses transients or includes ones that I don't want. It'd be nice to have a low emphasis or high emphasis like in beat detective (for tabbing to a kick and then working with a snare).



If the tab to transient sensitivity is fixed then that's fine, I'll continue to stand it. It'd just be nice if they made a variable setting.

Thanks,

-Drew

In PT8, the tab sensitivity is tied to the Elastic Properties-Event Sensitivity. If you turn on elastic audio, you can adjust it (watch the analysis markers for a visual). You can then turn elastic audio off if you want to. It will still remember your sensitivity setting for that track.
A global threshold would be much better, but this method does work.

Something I didn't know about PT. I'll try it out tomorrow. You might just be my new hero.

I don't know, but I tried it today and it did indeed work - in 7.4 no less.

It's not perfect (ie if there's one detected transient that is a bit before the actual transient as sometimes happens, that won't change), but you can remove a certain amount of spill. Definitely something useful to know - and the first new bit of PT technique I've learnt for a while that has a benefit to my workflow, so thanks for that!

I don't mind the global setting, never been a problem for me. And if it does miss a transient its pretty easy to just manually select it! Good to know about the little ea trick though.

Easy but slow. Depends on how fast you like to work!

True, though 95 times out of 100 it will get the transient for me, will have to try out the ea way though. Compared to logic though the standard pro tools method is so much faster!
