For instance, we normally play the song “This Glorious Grace” in the key of G whenever Jaleesa is leading that song, but when Aaron leads that song, we play the song in the key of C. Since all of my tracks are already warped I can change the key of the tracks for that song with just a few clicks of the mouse.
Another example of why I warp my tracks is to allow for quick tempo changes. Some days you might want to lead a song a little slower than the normal BPM. Since my tracks are warped, I change the tempo in the master scene, and all of my tracks automatically follow.
