Logic Pro 9 Best Methods for Tempo, Time & Rhythm Alignment?


New Member
Hello All, I am looking to edit some lengthy jams to concise segments. I wish to mix and match audio tracks (ex. drum section from begining with bass section in middle with guitar section at end). No metronome was used, so while the general structure (melody and rhythm) remained similar, tempos vary so that the parts don't match up perfectly. I know Logic has some pretty powerful time-based editing capabilities through its flex mode, but i am confused where the logical starting point would be for my situation. Do you think it would be to first chop up segments, pick a q-reference, set a global tempo, stretch or compress segments, and then individually correct any remaining rhythm alignment issues? What do you think are the best methods to accomplish this? I hope my questions are clear - if not please tell me. Thanks to anyone who cares and can help!
