How do I add a click track intro to a backing track?

Permanent link to this post Posted by barrywuthrich » Fri Jan 06, 2012 1:31 am

Hi,
I have a backing track for a song called Little Wing by Hendrix. But the song has a 10 bar introduction that is guitar only, and the backing track starts after the intro. I generated a 10 bar click track at the right tempo for the intro, and imported the backing track. Now, how do I put the click track in front of the backing track and save it?
Thanks,
Barry

Once you have a click track at the right tempo the hard part is done.
Import the music track (if you've not already got it in the same project as the click track) so that you have the music track and the click track one above the other.
Select the "Time Shift Tool" (double headed arrow button <--> or F5 key) and drag the music track to the right. You will probably need to make a few attempts dragging it left/right until you get it in exactly the right place so that the rhythm matches.
