If there’s anything I’ve learned, it’s that managing tempo is a major stumbling block for Logic Pro users. From Flex Time to Smart Tempo, many users struggle to achieve tempo perfection for their Projects.
For example, a reader named Jim B. contacted me because he was having trouble with Drummer.
The issue – no matter how hard Jim tried, Drummer wouldn’t play in time with his audio recordings.
Has this ever happened to you? You’ve laid down some ideas and arranged them into a song. And now you’d love to add Drummer or an Apple Loop to complete the Project.
But despite Drummer and Apple Loops willingness to adapt tempo, neither option will work!
I thought this was a great chance to help out anyone struggling with tempo in Logic.
In today’s video above, I figure out why Drummer doesn’t match up with Jim’s recordings. Then, I use Flex Time to edit the rhythm guitar’s performance to better line up with the Project Tempo.
When I bring Drummer back into the picture, it sounds great!
So today’s video is all about Flexing audio regions to better match up with a consistent Project Tempo.
NEXT WEEK – I’ll do the opposite! Instead of Flexing the guitar performance, I’ll use Smart Tempo to beat-map Logic’s Project Tempo.
That way Drummer, Apple Loops, and imported audio files will match the beat-mapped result.
So if you’ve been stuck on tempo in Logic Pro, be sure to check out these next couple of videos 👍
