This has got me thinking, I know you can record and track with tempo changes, but does
anyone do or currently try recording and playing into their DAW like live
players/orchestra would to picture?
I know you can record into a DAW (mine is
Reaper and Ableton) and then fiddle with tempo envelopes, but is there any advantage to
re-recording and overdubbing free hand to give the instrumental parts a more live fluid
feel like real instruments?
Everytime I have tried to input tempo changes,
automation envelopes for tempo, the fluidity seems to be lost, even to the point that
turning off Quantize, still 'sticks' some notes, and it doesn't sound as free form as when
i played it in?
This may sound a bit mad, but the more I listen to film music,
changing tempo with the scene sounds right, and not get too caught up with automation etc
(presuming you can play along with the picture I suppose)
