    Varispeed :Tempo Sync. problem between 2 Tracks
    Hello , I recorded a Drum Solo with Garage band couple months ago and I transfered it from Garage Band to Logic Pro 9 . Now I' trying to record my guitar track with Logic Pro 9. The problem is the tempo of the Drum track is too fast. To be able to play with the drums track I have to slow down the track to -15 % and would like to bring back the original speed to o% after . I customized my Transport bar and set up " Vari Speed " I reduced the speed to -15% and record my guitar track playing of course in the same time the Drum Track . When I'm playing and recording , everything I hear sounds good at -15 % . The problem is when I listen to the result I recorded ( my guitar track and the Drum Track ) at at -15% or at 0% , the tempo between the 2 tracks are not synchronize anymore ... I try to fix it but I cannot find the solution .... :-(( It seems to be tricky ...... ( I try to find a solution in Inspector / Follow Tempo ... but nothing is working so far ...) Do you have any idea how to resolve that issue ? ( I'm a new user in Logic Pro ) Thank you !!!! Pascal

    Hi Pascal When you say the tracks aren't syncronized anymore, do you mean that one of the tracks speeds back up to 0%, but the other one doesn't (or it plays back at an entirely different speed)? Or are the tracks the same tempo but your guitar is slightly out of sync/ In which case it could just be latency from your audio interface... Thanks for clarifying Pascal! Cheers Hamish

    On top of Hamish's questions... If you record the guitar at -15%, even if you manage to get it to play faster -- in time with the drums, and properly synchronized at 0% -- the guitar is going to take on a bit of a Mickey Mouse quality (what's called a "formant shift"). So my suggestion is that you flex (not varispeed) the drum track so that it's playing back at the equivalent of 15% slower. Then record your guitar part. When you're finished, disable flex on the drum part and now flex the guitar part to be the equivalent of 15% faster. This way you'll at least preserve the formant of the guitar. It'll just play back faster than you originally played it. If that's what you're after...
