SMPTE Lock and Automation

Sat Jun 12, 2021 9:27 pm


Mixing vocals and forgot to set the tempo of my project before hand (I only do this for echo/delay effects). I've locked smpte and adjusted tempo with no issue other than the automation stays in the same position from previous tempo how can I fix this so I don't have to struggle to slide each point back to the current audio region..
