Hey when comping vocals and there is a note that is a little late or a little early with respect to the beat, you want to shift that syllable so it's in line with the notes on the beat. I'm having trouble with this. Doing it by ear seems a little hit and miss. Is there a more scientific way to know if a particular vocal's syllable is aligned with a note on the beat? You can visually look at the sound waves of the vocals and try to line them up that way but with vocals its a little more complex bc there are so many different consonant sounds so im assuming there are different ways in which the vocal waves would need to line up. Like the word "Boat" is pretty easy to line up, but "Stack" isn't so much. Do you line it up with the start of the 'sss' sound, or the 'tttt' or the vowel?
