I would love to see a plugin that you could have a talking metronome, you could your marker to be zero and have it count down backwords 8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 or cut off the 2,1 or whatever variables you can set.

Am I the only one that would love this?

Here's a Hint : Try Re-Drum in Reason Rewired to the host app.

umm, that would take literally 30 secs to make with a mic and a soft sampler.

My point is this, if your working with a vocalist, a lot of talkback time is spent counting someone in. This way you could set the variables up and when your recording someone, you wouldn't have to count them in. It would work like the metronome, but more customizable.

Redrum has this? I don't get it, please explain your theories on how a soft sampler could do this automatically?

Thanks,

ive done that in powertracks that i use.
its quite simple. here are the steps.
1. record the sequencers metronome on a midi track.
or record a midi pattern as a metronome.
2. on an audio track record your voice 8/7/6 etc etc against the metronome.
3. for each click of the metronome. note its time position.
and edit each wavelet 8/7/6 etc etc so its time point matches the metronome click.
just in case your audio wavelets didnt exactly match the metronome.
ie you spoke "off"/couldnt get it perfect..
4. mute midi metronome track.
5. save your "spoken" metronome as a wave you can use in other
projects.

It´s surprises me that you have to count that much. If I have to count to somebody, I uses my fingers

I never count anyone in.. this is the performers job imo. Anyone with a modicum of musical talent will get where they have to come in. I prefer to give people a nice run up in the song, 4 bars usually and let them do their thing

I understand this, that would be easy, but my idea would probably work best as an option inside the actual program rather than a plugin, now that I'm thinking about it. Becuase the way your explaining it I would have to copy the wave file to every intro, or chorus.

I do all hip hop so rappers are always needing a cue, this would be a time saver feature for me.

You could make your own wave file of, say, exactly one bar of countdown at 120 bpm. Then simply import it into a new project and time stretch it with snap-to-grid enabled. Move it to where you need it.

I've never needed anything like this. I make a midi guide track first, and there's usually enough musical clues so the singer knows exactly where they are.

hey if theres a demand (1) there could be a supplier. who knows. make it a plugin, call it
the count-n-ator.

have sexy chic on the cover/GUI like IK multimedia amplitud counting while licking her fingers.





mean while u can do like postproduction sessions where there is a count in beep before the actor says his lines.

just import one beep to your session copy it 3 times at grid, glue it together and drag for eachsection.

make it nonmusical sounding so the rapers know its not part of the song.
