So I've finished charting my first song and am trying to create unisons.
I've managed to get the 4 tracks (guitar, bass, drums, keys) open in one midi window, but can't figure out how to actually create a unison. I've made a single overdrive in one track and then tried the "use the U command" that the authoring docs recommend to copy it to the other tracks. Does this just mean I type U? (I remember finding the tempo mapping with q a bit odd). All I get is the general error noise on my computer if I try this. Maybe something is set up wrong? As a work around, could I just copy the overdrive to the other tracks manually and things would recognize them as being lined up and count as a unison?
As a follow up, do unisons need to appear on the vocal track in any way? Couldn't find this in the docs.
Possible issues that could be affecting things
a ) My dry vocals appear to be in my beat track? Should they be here? It's definitely possible I messed this up somehow being a noob. I did the render mono stem tracks thing with them already to prepare for exporting if that causes it. If this is not supposed to be there, do I just delete them, or will doing the "generate beat track" thing that I need to do soon fix this issue?
b ) My bass track is not lining up with the others when I have them all open in the same midi track. I suspect this was the track that got messed up when I was working on authoring it (I was trying to copy/paste a midi that I found into the track when I began, somehow this destroyed the track beyond my fixing). I ultimately had to recreate the track but maybe things messed up when I did. This was months ago and I thought the issue was fixed until I opened them all in the same midi window. The overdrive phrase I've authored lines up in all the tracks when I toggle through them until I get to the bass track. Then it jumps a measure backwards for some reason.
Ugh. So close, but so far.
c ) One additional thought. Could the bass track be messed up because (if I remember correctly) I copied a blank bass track into my current project after having done tempo mapping? So my fresh bass track (to make up for the one I destroyed) is not quite at the same tempo as the ones that existed after my tempo mapping? In this case, would going back through and re-doing my q's in my tempo map fix the issue?
