Hello Sirs,

If you could please help a newbie studio one user...

I am currently working on two tracks in studio one:

1. A recorded bass guitar track which is not synced to a click track.
2. A midi drum track recorded using midi drum pads.

Basically I just wanted to sync the midi drum track (specifically the kick drum) to the recorded bass track, the bass track has a separate video take that i plan to use later. Editing the bass track to match the midi is not an option for me at this point.

What i did was to use transient detection on the bass track, and sort of drag each midi kick drum and line it up with the bass track transient lines. For me to be able to drag each midi note i would have to open the midi editor, and when the midi editor is open, i could not see the bass track and thus could not see the transient lines.

I must be doing something wrong here. I would appreciate any help coming from you guys.

Thanks.

-Ian

So first of just to make things easier for you measure the tempo of the recorded track and insert this into the tempo preferences which is located on the bottom of the screen. This will make the next step more easy if you haven't already done so. Now just double click on the midi track and it will pull up the edit screen. Then you can just move the midi notes along in to the time you want. Thats all you need to edit the midi. If you having a problem with moving it all around or if it's taking too long, just re-record the beat with your midi controller with the recorded track playing and the metrone playing. If you have anymore problems then you may need to refresh you software. Save all of your tracks to a memory stick or something and re install studio one
