warping a vocal with different tempo / time signature

Post by leighbeynon » Wed Jan 19, 2011 9:47 am

so i like a vocal i have from a break beat kind of track, want to bring it up to 126bpm and 4/4
the original time signature doesn't feel like 4/4

just wanted some tips,
what i would start with is the original track, and the acapella get them both lined up
so they are in sync with the original tempo,

then remove the original track and see if 4/4 beats works with the vocal alone,
im just wondering if its actually going to work and sit tight with the new drums and tempo

Does it have snares hitting on 2 and 4, like a normal song? If so, it's 4/4. It should match up.
