August 23, 2019 38 By Kailee Schamberger


the do by there everybody my name’s just two Wilde on the head of
audio here this train is situated music and welcome to another mark a lecture I
had a request I’m from somebody asking about how to do
tempo mapping in Pro Tools and 10 by mapping is where
instead of working I would musicians are working to a click
track is where I musicians have recorded with had a click
track and we are now moving Pro Tools to match the tempo that musicians
applying so he is a mark a lecture on that enjoy her out so here we are how we could do
some temp a mapping today I on this Sat particular Pro Tools
session annual night that on the temporal here it’s just sitting at a 120 beats per
minute am but that actually is in the tempo the songs in SF quickness men’s
track anyway I just couldn’t I’m %uh then you’ll notice that the temp a dozen Carolina the beat
to the song title okay so I’m obviously wind it’s not a
120 beats per minute Commissioner you 1 have to get this
happen happening right now so arm the drums have been played and so what we can do is try and match
too greedy to what the drums are actually doing so I’m gonna actually solo the ke comiste makers in the ones probably
his drive along the mightiest and I’m just gonna increase the hi to
this a little bit see concealing louisiana okay so the kick in the snare and rematch driving the the the tracking the
tracks tempo so um firstly we need to be in sleep
mode down so that the basic idea is we gonna
position the cursor I’m to I alongside the kick drum and then we gonna just chill Pro Tools
what beat that actually ease so here’s the very
first kick UK and I’m units which on the tab to
trends in baton just here said now when I do that when I press the
tab button it’ll move it directly to with the kick
drum actually years in a child’s you mean you can actually see you at cuesta is
now a ride on the kick drum MK so the post-fight from here not that by one so I’m according to Pro
Tools now its arms said at by heart three not because it’s just going around
minute so arm I’m gonna actually say now produces
not batteries actually buy one so the shortcut to do the city’s command RI right which is called the identify beat combined hamp in here it’s a war
the location is part 3 but on just ask and turn it into bar one not by just pressing the one and now that actually makes it by one be
one teak 000 UK so soon as I do that ash not compress okay it thinks now might that eighties that Pro Tools is
now actually at baa1 but its two sitting at 120 beats/min move change that in a second so I’m so
would now identified whereby one actually is right so we just move along a little bit
3e all prime so this kick drum here is actually read part two is so a game
I’m going to now on tadpole not so he’s not curse on the keep calm tap forward that actually
makes it to Batsu select keep trying his way back to
actually start according to this is it bad to be too so that’s not correct so I’m gonna
choose come behind online one more time and now I’m gonna
make it by to my so now we click OK rights he can see net we’ve identified
by one and now we’ve identified by to use and
now there’s a reference point in between sets actually saying that between this kick drum and this kick
drum the tempo is it ninety five point for
116 beats per minute McKay now this track is actually being family consistently played so I’m gonna yes and it’s pretty much you can see
that and the bond numbers are actually Khan a
matching to weigh these key terms are so against now just continue on say he on
assume that that’s part 3 im pretty sure it is ones 3 all one that so that’s going to be about 3 I and
I’m going to I command hi dad again inside by 3 I’m then that one he and his part 4 mind I my you can see that actually as
big as the am becomes fairly close I’m past fall night despite he is going to be par-5
some just using command on my each time and just numbering the Bahamas
and you can see the dramas chest slightly change tempo a little bit but pretty good Jim 3 tragedy okay now this is now I’m nest and get me very very handy so
we can just continue and map although the bass isn’t going to
be tough on mmm disc from here you can see is pretty
much the same patton sunspot seeks UK min you just do one more not that one
looks need to be bass 7 mind I past seven my so now am it’s pretty much keeping on timeout if the testes of
course is we time when we would do this all the
way through the track actually but the testes plane that it kinda looks
like a Japanese bank counter touchdowns and the other thing you can
do to test these taxes create a click track moment popped up in here and natural
running time with music as well the the which is great sin now what it’s done is
we’ve now change Pro Tools greed to match and I I E a played and
performed pot and this can be very handy if we wanted
to put me track seen if you wanna rewire stuff it’s great for
you and having tempo to match delay times and so on and so forth so arm one other
thing that I should probably mention is that this will only work night if if you go to the
transport we I’m mmm K this whole technique will only work if the conductor is switched
on he falls to switch the conductor of
you’ll see that it goes into what’s called a manual tempo Mahmoud and that means pretty much that the
tempo is fixed you can change the value of it but it maintains the
tens about you love it here I but you want delay are you to do tempo
changes throughout the song so the conductor allows you to switch and
change tempo throughout the track so that’s a by September mapping I’ll on Pro Tools very very handy and I hope
you enjoyed that so I hope you enjoyed that mark the
lecture on I mapping he not temperamental in Pro Tools if
you’ve got any other suggestions of them are collectors in terms of Pro Tools all
