Hey, everybody. Had this odd thing happen using sonar 4 producer and ct. I
am using the audio metronome and recording all audio tracks. I inserted a
temp and time signature change partway through my song and the metronome
went a little loopy. If I played the track from before the tempo and time
sig change and listen to the metronome, the metronome would change and add
two beats into my count. For instance, I changed from 4/4 to 6/4 and there
are two extra ticks at the different tempo before the one beat of the 6/4
part. It's hard to describe in writing. Anyway, I am sure I put the tempo
and time change at the beginning of the measure I wanted to affect. If I
play the track after the time change, the whole song is off from the
metronome by two beats. Somebody told me that inserting tempo/time changes
only really works with midi tracks and not audio, but I find this hard to
believe, I would think it would work equally well for audio tracks. Is this
true? Thanks for any help on this subject.
