Changing key in 4 part vocal harmony

Post by BillyFraserCubase » Tue Feb 06, 2018 7:16 pm

Heiho,
1. I have 4 vocal harmonies on 4 tracks. Repeating later in the song a second time but UP 2 half notes-
1st time it plays fine, but the second time..if i try to change it up 2 half notes, it changes the 1st time as well, and vica versa! (using Pitch & Warp)

Seems to be copying/ or changing the first recording when I try to go up a note. Solution?

2....and when changing 4 part harmony, can I do all 4 tracks together or must I do each track seperately?? :-)
Thanx.

You need to convert the audio parts into new copies because by default they're actually shared copies. Use Audio menu -> Convert To New Copy (off the top of my head I think this is it). So, select all the 2nd occurrences and convert them, then they are separate and you can adjust them individually.

Ok, try again... Select audio event, Edit menu -> Function-> Convert To Real Copy. Can also use right mouse button as well.

Preferences --> Editing --> Audio --> on the option "On Processing Shared Clips" select open option dialog and it will ask you if you wish to create a new version everytime you are processing a shared clip, or you can select always create a new version.
