|Summary||0003311: Multitrack Quantization|
|Description||While in Ardour 3.0 a quantization feature for MIDI is introduced, it would be nice to have an equvalent feature for the audio tracks. |
Even good musicians are sometimes slightly away from perfection. So especially in fast music you often want to quantize the (micro-)timing of e.g. the drum-tracks to fit the tempo map exactly. This comes in handy when working with MIDI/Audio together, as the MIDI track is just in time (when quantized or programmed).
I would suggest the following procedure for quantizing:
1. Split up one or multiple tracks in slices (i.e. just at the beginning of a drum beat)
2. Select all the slices
3. Set grid size (e.g. 1/4 1/8 1/16 1/32 and triplets)
4. Start the quantize function (e.g. 'q' key like MIDI quantize)
5. All the slices are now aligned to the tempo map
So my request is dedicated to a feature which automatically aligns small peaces of audio to the tempo map.
The icing on the cake would be an automatic crossfade-length control.If the slices are shorter than the duration of the beat, there would be a gap between each other. On the other hand a long slice would create a long crossfade to the next slice. So Ardour should automatically extend or shorten the slices to fit in the raster and have minimal crossfade (to prevent clicks).
|Additional Information||I don't know exactly how this is accomplished in other DAWs, but I think this would be an intuitive approach. Please improve this description with good ideas.|

||you will find that alot of what you are requesting is already implemented in Ardour 3.0. The only real problem right now is to find a very accurate on-set detection method since the available methods are not that great.|
||With the introduction of the QM-Onsets plugin, things are much better now.|
I find the visualization on the grid sequencer unintuitive, often loses track of its position on the beat for a change and feel a little fluid.
a solution would be to use thicker and slightly more color on strong vertical lines leading progressively to the start of the measure and the quarter (if you are in 4/4) then the off-beat locations, etc., etc., also help to set this as roll bar by default and beatz bars and the numbers written on it followed this logiga, i know that is not the same argument, but is very similar, so I think it's fair to also mention here
