finding the groove and tempo from a record sample
I like to take samples from old records to serve as an inspirational starting point for my own music. The problem I encounter is matching the tempo and groove so as to incorporate midi synths and drums. I use the tap tempo with Ableton and other devices along with the tempo interpreter in Celemony melodyne. If I use Celemony Melodyne the tempo will change slightly over time but will do so consistently as to provide a perfect loop. The loop will sound flawless but as soon as I try to add beats and or other sounds it will drift and be out of sync because of this slight swing / groove. I know there is a way to avoid this but I am at a loss. I just don't fully understand how to use the groove feature and Ableton in general. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.
