I know this is more of a general question, but I literally just got recording capabilities yesterday. <BR>I'm running a cheap, semi-old (there's either a very small hard drive or none at all) keyboard through a Tascam 464 portastudio and I have access to a college studio running Protools, but I just got access to it today and haven't been in yet. I recorded a drum pattern off the keyboard into the tascam directly and when I listen to the track by itself, I notice very faint beeps making patterns in the background. Does anyone know of a way to lay those patterns on a track? <BR> <BR>Thanks and Blessings
Well, I would suggest manually deleting the actual drum hits so all you are left with is the beeps. <BR>You could then just manually copy the position of the beeps (you should see them in the recorded waveform) on a midi track. <BR>Alternatively, the Beat Detective and Sound Replacer functions in Protools may be useful here. <BR>I'm not very familiar with Protools but there may well be a way of converting audio transients (beats) to midi. <BR> <BR>Basically you'll need to delete the non-beep sounds and then you'll have several options as to how to harness the beep pattern. <BR> <BR>If you time stretch the recording you could just play along with the beeps on a midi track. You wouldn't need to delete the actual beats then. Processing the track with a compressor would make the beeps louder and aid you in this.
