I was watching a video on YouTube. I think he said:
Il a donc fallu que je recale chaque groupe de notes pour avoir quelque chose qui ressemble à un chat mais qui soit quand même musical ou au moins un petit peu.
I'm quite sure that he said "recale", but the only usage of the verb "recaler" that I know of is in the sense of "fail" which does not apply to this context. Given the context, I wonder if it is a shortened form of "recalculer", though I cannot seem to find any dictionary entry for this.
Is "recaler" commonly used in conversation as an equivalent of "recalculer"? Or have I heard wrong, and is it actually some other word?
