Join Josh Harris for an in-depth discussion in this video Tightening up a vocal that drifts from the click track, part one, part of Remixing Techniques: Time Stretching.
I'm going to begin by creating a new Pro Tools session, and if you're following…along in Pro Tools, this will be the exercise file that you can open.…I'll select New Session, select Stereo Mix, our Sample Rate is at 48K.…I will save this session in the Jody Nardone - Waiting in the Road Remix folder…so that all of our files will live within the same folder.…If you're using another DAW, you'll want to create your own new session and…then import the lead vocal and cowbell tracks that I exported for you in the last movie.…
I'll go ahead and import those files right now, and I like to copy the files, not add.…I can add these directly to the session, but I'd rather copy them so that Pro Tools…creates a fresh copy of them that will live in the Audio Files folder…that's attached to our session.…I select New Track, and boom, there are my two tracks.…I'll also create a new Master Fader as well as a click track, which we'll come…back to in a moment, but I'll go ahead and set it up right now.…
Select Click from Instrument dropdown menu, and there is our click track.…
