I'm making my first custom, and have finally started to tackle the vocals. I have been using the space-bar to quickly start/stop the song to figure out the starting point and length of my vocal notes. Everything seemed to be going well (albeit slowly), but then I stumbled on how to make scrubbing work when searching for something else on the forums. (Warning: mostly irrelevant note ahead - I just want to vent in these parenthesis: I'd previously searched for info on scrubbing since I knew I was missing something, but couldn't find it anywhere. Even my best attempts at google-fu, searching forums, and re-reading the beginner documents for the 80th time failed to reveal that holding down alt was the magic key I was missing.)
Now that I've discovered scrubbing, I thought my work would be much easier, but in reality I've got an issue.
When checking previous work on the song, now using scrubbing, everything seems off. All my previous vocal work seems to be mapped about 1/64 of a beat "early". Has anyone else noticed something like this? I've never finished a song before - otherwise I'd just export it and test to see if I can figure out going on, but I don't feel up to tackling another major learning experience right now. Once the song is done I think I can handle that (and I feel ever so close).
So I'm looking for advice:
Do I trust scrubbing and shift all my work?
Do I continue this track using the space-bar to ensure consistency within in the project?
Is 1/64 even enough to be noticeable (in other words do I even need to worry)?
