TLDR: Is there a way to automatically correct pitch and timing errors in recordings using a midi or audio track?
New to the forum so please forgive me if I placed it in the wrong category.
I used Sonar Cakewalk In the days of Windows 3.1 I had a copy and used it to write sheet music. I never used any other functionalities back then.
Bought a new copy a year before it became a free product but hardly use it.
Audacity gives me a quick and dirty solution.
However I want to go beyond and started to use Cakewalk by Bandlab but when time is of a essence I fall back to Audacity.
I'm looking for a functionality that might already be there and I don't know how to look for it or it doesn't exist at all.
I conduct choirs.
During Covid we are not allowed to practice.
So I ask the choir members to sing and send the files to me.
This works good enough for the rehearsals.
However I want to make audio files that are nice to listen to and not just for rehearsals.
So one of the things I would like to do is make sure everyone sings the right notes, starts and ends on the same time.
This is not the easiest tasks when you are not singing together even when we use a clicktrack.
Is there a way to automatically correct a recording; timing and pitch using either a midi file or another correct track?
I know about Melodyne. But to be honest the quality of the recordings is already good enough that it is not worth the time to correct it that way.
However if there is a way to automatically correct it using another file (midi, audio or another type) it will be worth to invest that kind of time.
Or should I ask:
How can I easily correct multiple recordings easily; pitch and timing/duration corrections, in the least amount of time. I'm lazy you see 😀
It's mostly corrections of the timing.
Something that happens automatically when you are singing together and look at the conductor 😉.
