Question on aligning sources with different time codes. Posting here before I cross post.
Taped two bands the other week as follows:
Mics1 > DR-70D
Mics2 > DR-70D
SBD > DR-60D
For the headliner, I imported all 3 of that sets files into Reaper and used the Nudge tool to line up the first song using vocals and drums as my reference.
I noticed the last song had some shift to it so I used the stretch tool to line up the last song.
Both ends remained lined up and sounding good, drums and vocals still tight, so I continued with the rest of my mixing.
The recording of the opener is a different story.
Performing the same steps as before, shifting the end of the recording also shifts the beginning. Now I am not sure why the headliner worked so well.
Should I be "pinning" the beginning of these once I have nudged them?
Or am I using a completely incorrect method?
