tempo old recording
Sunday, August 15 2004 @ 09:26 AM CDT

Hi,

I just found an old cassette recording of me and my friends. I allready reduced the noise on it. But I really like to add some new instruments to it using Garageband. But I have problems with the tempo. I'm not that good at rythms. Is it possible to determine the tempo of it so I can use a drumtrack or do I have to put in the drums manually?

TIA

I find the tempo of analog recordings by placing the sound file in a Garageband track, and playing around with the controls. Turn the metronome on. While the track is playing, start moving the tempo slider (bpm) up and down, until the metronome is synched with the music. This technique, in conjunction with looking at the waveform peaks and valleys (and how they align with the grid), will help you get pretty close!
