Preliminary tests show it works well.
BTW, that WAV converter is freakin' quick.
Glad you like it. I think it is much quicker and friendlier than the old Zoom AFM, (but I would say that).

What BPM did you use in the converter???

I tried the same with Reaper, but it didn't matter how I converted the audio tracks, (current takes or all takes), it didn't line up with the Midi. I didn't really expect any different, since the same routines in the software are used to create the audio files, and can't see why you would get different result either.
I am not surprised that the bounced track lines up with the audio, as it is simply becomes another audio track.
It is not a tempo problem, as it neither gets worse or better as the song progresses, indicating that both tracks are running at the same BPM.
After some experimenting I found that the Audio was starting exactly 1/32 note early. I changed the time signature to 4/32, so I could move the audio tracks up by 1/32nd note, and presto, they all lined up perfectly.
I then tried a Midi file from the Windows folder, (town.mid), which had the same tempo (120BPM), and imported that into Reaper and deleted all but the drum track. I had exactly the same problem until I moved the Audio tracks up 1/32nd note, (it sounded odd, because it wasn't meant to be the beat for my song, but it was in time with the audio tracks). This implies that there is nothing wrong with my Midi file generation.
Since I have no control over the start point of the audio during conversion, (it is simply a stream of audio data), I am guessing it must be something in the recorder that starts the audio 1/32nd note later than the drum and Bass tracks, but I can't think why they would do that
It's a shame that it's not round the other way, as I can delay the Midi start point in the file!!!
lucas wrote:When I did the all tracks conversion I unchecked the bass since I didn't need it. will try again later to see if that's the issue.
I don't think it is, as they are two separate tracks in a Midi file, and the timing would be the same, whether the Bass was added or not, but please do try it and let me know.
regardless, it's very usable in this form as is.
awesome job, Codekiddie!!
Thanks for the feedback Lucas, it all helps.
The drum track sounded awesome w/an EZ kit loaded first try...just so perfect.
Then I converted all the audio tracks w/your other converter and tossed em in...Everything is syncing up ok.
Good work over there, codiePhil!
Surfercook, I can't understand why you are not having a problem with syncing like Lucas and I??? Maybe more testing required. Which recorders did you guys use for testing?
