    OT: Creating a Click Track

    Hey everyone,

    I have a pre-existing piece of recorded music that I need to make a click track for. Does anyone know of a good way to do this other than adjusting the metronme throughout the entire tune? There may not be.

    I have both Digital Performer 5 and Cakewalk Sonar Home Studo 6XL.

    Thanks for the help.

    Doesn't Sonar have a tempo tap feature? I'm not sure how to use it, though.

    You need sync it to midi, or only you need a click for follow in practice?

    If it was me, and I didn't need locked sync, I'd import the audio, set up a percussion midi track to record stick clicks and record clicks "on the fly." But, as I am constantly reminded on these boards, I am NO expert. Perhaps R. Bowser (new moderator and all around good guy and SONAR expert) would be worth contacting on these boards. Best of luck!

    I need to sync it to MIDI so I can create an orchestral arrangement. Then, I'll export MIDI and import into Sibelius for final score preparation.

    Thanks,

    Hmmm. So the final product is an orchestral arrangement for live players that will sync up with the audio? If this is how it is, is the audio the same or different from the live performance?

    I'm doing very similar work now. The process kind of depends on what the original source material is like. What kind of audio tracks do you have to work with?

    So, the "Tap feature" will be what you need, i think. It allows you to tap the tempo, and adjust the durations automatically to your original wav file. Sonar has it, i dont know about the DP.

    In SONAR (Producer 6.2.1) the only "Tempo Tap" feature I could find was when inputting a new tempo. I would love to know how to use the "Tempo Tap" feature in Sonar. Please enlighten! Thanks.

    The feature is called "Fit improvisation" in Sonar (not tap, sorry) and you can read an explanation about how it work here:

    But thinking well about it, DPDan has made some very marvellous synchonizations between midi and real orchestra videos with Digital Performer, so maybe it has better tools than sonar for that. Just you need to ask him.
