Chapter 8 Recording MIDI > Tempo Mapping—Time Warping

Tempo Mapping—Time Warping

In Chapter 6, “Recording the Voice,” the click track and tempo map were discussed as they pertained to simple tempos that do not change during the course of the song. While it’s not necessary to have a click or tempo map to record MIDI, its basis as musical data makes it ideal for using in conjunction with a tempo map. For most situations, the single tempo map is sufficient. However, if you are playing to a pre-recorded live performance, the tempo can fluctuate. It is possible to create a tempo track that follows the performance as its tempo changes. This is time warping and can be performed right in the project window.

Time warping allows you to move and stretch the tempo map directly in the project window using the ruler display at the top with the Time Warp tool. When you select the Time Warp tool, the display will automatically change to bars and beats if it was not already that way. The ruler will be colored red to indicate that you are in this powerful mode.
