Adding Bars in LE

So my band is recording a 30 min long trck and I am mapping out all of the automation for the tempo changes and parts. One of the parts at the beginning I screwed up and put 6 bars instead of 8. Is there any way to just add the two bars in? And also, I am doing this all on a grid, so when i put in a marker that says "chorus" or whatever what is the difference between absolute and bar beat reference? Thanks

if there is repetition involved you might be able to duplicate something to fill in the time. It depends what the sound is and how tight is the rhythm. Did you record with a click ?

From what I can gather of your other question, the bar/beats ruler is in musical time notation (bars, beats, subdivision) where the time ruler is just absolute program running time. So the relationship between these would depend on the tempo and meter you choose.

you can add time by cutting and pasting all of the automation 2 bars later in time. just select the "all" group and select starting on bar 6, and option/ctl - x and then click on bar 8 and option/ctl - v

once you have all of your automation moved, you can move the tempo maping around so that it is later too. i think you can cut and paste tempo maps too, not quite sure.

there may be an easier way to do this, but this is better than "there is no way".
