flipside.... Are there any other programs just like BEAT DETECTIVE?? (20-Nov-02  12:56PM )

- I really need to time correct my drums and shit to a grid as best as possible. Everyone tells me that you can easily do it in Beat Detective. Well, I don't have the pro tools system, I use Logic. Are there any plug-ins that I can use to do this?? Thanks!!

earl grey.... Re:Are there any other programs just like BEAT DETECTIVE?? (20-Nov-02  11:39PM )

- you can do this in any DAW program.

Step one: pull out the calculator and divide 60 (as in seconds) by the the target BPM. for example 60sec./125bpm=.48sec=480ms. this will find the length of one beat.

step two: multiply the number of beats in the loop by the beat length. example: 4beats*480ms=1.92sec= 1920ms

step three: pitch adjust the loop to the length you detirmined.

step four: if the individual beats are off and you want to correct them you can do this a number of ways

step four method one: you can visually locate the beginings of sounds, so highlight from the begining of a beat to the next drum hit and correct the length with pitch shift, an eigth note in the previous examples would be 240ms, a sixteenth would be 120ms.

step four preferred method: sometimes the above method can make the loop sound "wobbley", a better way is to make up for differences in timing by inserting silences (if the silence is noticable, you can use a reverb over the last snippet of sound to give it a better sense of continuity), or by selectively cutting out sections of sound, the best parts to cut out are the (more-or-less empty) spaces between beats.

good luck
