Using Avid Elastic Audio to Edit Acoustic Guitars
In this video tutorial, I take you through a basic overview of editing, and more specifically, time adjusting an acoustic guitar performance via Avid Pro Tools “elastic audio” feature. This feature can be run real-time or rendered/processed offline (to save CPU), however, most editors will probably keep it real-time for the duration of a project, pending conditions and circumstances.
I also talk a little bit about the phase/timing relationships between the three tracks of a single acoustic guitar as with any “multi-source” instrumentation, there can be issues presented, however more so when the performer (such as in this case) can physically move during a performance, thereby slightly altering their given proximity from each separate mic. Things to think about when performing such edits!
