Tap tempo and click and drag tempo

Recommended Posts

It would be so useful to have tap tempo function right there in the transport section and to be able to click and drag the tempo from there too. Please?

@Esteban Villanova, Will you expand on you idea a little bit please?  Specifically, why would it be better to set tempo in the transport module than where tempo presently resides?  Where do you want to be able to drag and drop tempo to?

As @Brando indicated, the tempo dialog box with the "Tap Tempo Here" bar still resides in Cakewalk by BandLab.

Tempo dialog

The Project > Insert Tempo Change command opens the Tempo dialog box. In the Tempo dialog box you can set a new Tempo at a specified point.

Use the following fields to insert a tempo change:

Tempo. Type a new tempo or use the Click here to tap tempo button to tap out a tempo. The Tempo field changes as the tapped tempo varies.

Change the Most Recent Tempo. Applies the tempo changes in the Tempo field to the most recent tempo.

Insert a New Tempo Starting at Time. This option applies the tempo from the Tempo field to a specific starting time.

However, I believe this greatly differs from @Esteban Villanova's suggestion.  That's why I requested more information.  we'll find out when he responds.  Perhaps he was not aware of this feature.

To me this would be a cumbersome procedure if I was wanting to create a project tempo map.

I like how the narrator stated the problem, matching audio to a tempo when the audio is not recorded to a click.  I assume the daw is Cubase 9.5 as the narrator did not state what version or edition he is using, just that the daw is Cubase.   The video demonstrates a slick and viable solution to a common recording issue.

Some forum users maybe surprised to discover the PG Music daw, RealBand, offers two solutions for this issue.  They are not as elegant as the Cubase solution but provide results that are just as effective. 

For solution one the user listens to a track in real time and taps keys on the keyboard to manually create a tempo map.  Then each track can be selected and adjusted to follow the manually created tempo map.

For solution two the Audio Chord Wizard (ACW) analyzes audio while the audio is imported into a project.  Both tempo and chord maps are automatically generated.  Each map can be manually refined and corrected by the user.  Once the user is satisfied with the results, one or both maps can be applied to all tracks in the song project.  This solution also works with PG Music's premier product, Band-in-a-Box.

I'm reasonably sure CbB has a solution for matching a project to audio created without a click track.  I just don't know what it is because I'm familiar with using PG Music's solution.
