Quantizing 101...

    I'm new to the forum and find this an awesome resource. It's truly amazing!

    On to my question...

    I do all my recording into Sonar 3 on my PC using two Delta 1010's. I have a Mackie 24-8 console and JBL monitors.

    After reading posts on thick guitar sounds, I am interested in attempting quantizing. Can anyone provide some instruction in this area?

    Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

    Usually this is catered to midi. The recorded info is set to a particular resolution and by quantizing, you're able to correct anything within the score so that it's falling in time with the other tracks or it gives you a certain feel or flow. This does'nt work for audio files. The equivalent for audio would be time strecthing/compression.

    I am familiar with track delay in the Sonar environment. Do I line up the beginning's of each wave file or try to match peaks? Should I phase flip? I guess I'm looking for a confirmation as to whether or not I'm doing correctly.

    Well, I'd try lining up the tracks then using each tracks advancing/delay option to get them sync'd together. I don't know of any other way to accomplish this at the moment.
