Need Studio One Expert To Answer This..

The Problem:

You import an audio file you have been hired to emulate, say, for karaoke. So our "imitation" track has to be exactly like the original song.

Import the song. Do a tempo map to make sure our session is RIGHT WITH the original, whether the original is all one tempo, or varies.

OK part one done.

Get into the middle of the song, and discover "Wow, that is one tricky guitar part. Could probably play it if I rehearsed it for two weeks lol." Don't have two weeks.

Solution in Logic: Use the Vari Speed control to slow down the session somewhat, record your guitar part, return session to original tempo. Done.

Solution in Pro Tools: Using Elastic Audio, put the tracks in Polyphonic mode, slow down the tempo, record, go back to normal tempo. Done.

Solution in both Cubase and Digital Performer: Highlight the original (reference audio) and in Cubase choose "Bounce Selection" in the AUDIO menu.When it asks "Replace events?" say "Yes". This simply means you are embedding the session tempo you've made by tempo mapping INTO the audio file.

Similarly in DP, choose menu command "Apply Session Tempo to Soundbite" (I think that's what it was called). NOW, the original you are imitating has an embedded tempo, put all tracks in Musical Mode, or in DP "Stretch Mode" and you can now do the same thing, slow down the session, record, then go back to normal tempo.

This works great for fast drum fills, string runs, whatever.

I cannot tell whether this is possible in Studio One. Does anyone know if it can be done?

Thanks much
Tom

Hello!
You do it in this order:
When you are done with the “tempo map” of the song...
Select the song region and bounce the region in place.
Right click the region and make sure it says “Map” instead of bpm.

Now, go to top left corner (time stretch menu) and select “time stretch, or follow”, cant remember for that channel.

Now you can change/lower the bpm for the project and the song will follow.

OK but....now what...I change the tempo of the whole session slower? Record guitar part.....then...the problem is there is no "one" tempo, the original file had multiple tempos....so I can't type in the original tempo to go back to it...so confused

Just make a new “dot” in the beginning and end of the tempo map.
Select all tempo map dots and lower the bpm.
I thing it even work with marquee tool..
Not in front of the computer right now so I can’t check

I don't know crap about studio one, but I'll tell you how to fix your problem....

...zap the PRAM, repair permissions and do a "Rain dance" cable swap

You're welcome.

Not good...you have to remember (or write down) the starting tempo God help you if you forget it. They gotta have a better way..

All the other DAWS have a button on their transport for unlocking the tempo so you can do what you want with it, then turn it back on (to locked, original tempo).....too bad the designers missed this, which is odd since they came from Cubase which does it fine....arrgh!!!

Thanks though!

Use a scratch pad for that or multiple!

Meaning create your Tempo map = the fastest way is using Melodyne.

Copy the selection to a new scratch pad.
Now you can either continue working in the scratch pad or the main arrange view!

Scratch pad is a great feature of S1....closest to Digital Performer's brilliant "chunks" ....thx
