Hello,

Hope you can help. I've put an MP3 of THIS lesson into Reaper. I set the BPM to 80 before I did this. Can someone please explain what I did wrong to make the beats not match the timing bar at the top? I think I've always had this issue but never noticed. I've put a screenshot so you can see what I mean. I like to do this so that I can visually see when the beats occur in relation to the notes played as well as hearing it.

Cheers.



Ahhhh, I've sussed it out. I had only looked at the GP5 file which says it is 80bpm. I created an MP3 from Stephane's video so I could play along with him and record myself at the same time. I do this so I can be critical when playing it back, it's hard for me to critique myself whilst playing. I do this so I can hear myself along with the tutor and pick out errors that I may not detect when playing.
When I went in and looked at the downloadable backing tracks it says 72bpm wink.gif

Let's see if any Reaper user can help.... try also writing a PM to Todd Simpson because I think that he is familiar with this daw.

Thanks Gab,

If you read the second part of the post you will see what the problem was. Stephane's GP5 tab says 80bpm but his video and backing track is 72bpm.

Cheers
