You're right, this sould be easier since the beat is pretty straightforward and easier to read.

Quick remarks :

- Your 2 first bars have a different tempo (98 bpm) from the third bar (110bpm) : not good !
- The tempo is 25% faster than what you have mapped, give or take (between 135-140bpm). You can see that the snare hits and drum kicks are not properly aligned in your bars (ie don't fall on beats or half-beats or quarter-beats...).

Each bar (at least at the begininng) should go :
S        S       S   k   S   k
1 and 2 and 3 and 4      

and the fifth snare hit should be the beginning of a new bar (instead of the sixth).

OK, I get ya. I noticed that basic drum pattern and figured it should map around those, but I must not have been reading the waveform properly. I will take another look at it.

 

Thanks!

OK I went back and checked it again:

 

Project 2

 

It went much better. I think missing that fifth snare the first time was what messed me up. It actually feels right this time.

 

It's only partially done because something came up while I was working on it, but I wanted to post it just to make sure I'm really on the right track.

Yup, that's the idea. Only 150 bars left to map :)

I don't know if this is relevant or not, but here's another explanation of tempo mapping:

Why using that method when using the Q shortcut gives the same result without having to transform anything and without having to clutter the entire tempo track with markers? Genuine question, I'm curious to know.

 

One thing I do NOT advise is tempo mapping in real time: it's not even remotely accurate enough for a tight tempo map, just imagine the lag between you hearing a sound and pressing the button, plus the delay between when the sound occurs and when Reaper plays it back. Tempo mapping is 75% eye and 25% ears, use the waveforms and accurately place your markers on the peaks. :)

Yeah I use the waveform mostly. I listen when there are a couple of peaks right next to each other and I'm trying to pick out which is the right one :) 

 

The main problem I have (out of lots of problems) is which peak out of the whole 'collection' of peaks that makes up one drum hit is the one I'm supposed to use.
