Re: recording and editing without ...
Though it's not brain surgery, I am not facile with beat mapping (I've only seen a tutorial). However, the more important thing for me is that after beat mapping the initial performance, every subsequent take must follow the initial - beat mapped - performance. This obviates the ability to introduce rubato in passages in subsequent takes. I am not talking about wild differences in each take. But there are instances where, the performer(s) will decide to take time or a luftpause, or whatever, that he/she or they did not initially do. In nuce, it seems to me that performing to a beat-mapped click really inhibits rubato in subsequent takes. I hope this makes sense. Thanks for your input. Here's a post script - I have performed on several classical music projects and we never used a click. Never. The DAW was pro tools in all the projects. The engineer recorded and edited in pro tools. Thanks again!
