Is there a way to have dedicated keys for tempo adjustment?
I know it can be done when the focus is on the tempo box, but I'm mixing with a DJ and need to ride the tempo whilst altering filters etc.

Thanks if you know...

some better tempo tools would be good.

push, pull and finer tempo adjust.

Would be VERY helpful.

cheers,

the easiest thing to do is get a simple midi controller and map a knob to the tempo contol.

I realise it can be controlled via MIDI, the point of my post was that I don't see why it shouldn't also be possible via fixed key commands - Live must be the only sequencer software that doesn't allow this. Anyway, I'll include this with my list of suggestions in the Wishlist forum when I get it all typed up...

It seems strange that you cant assign the up and down arrow keys to control the tempo...When playing with a DJ, its such a headache to have to grab the mouse and click on the tempo in the middle of a mix. by the time you do all that, its already audible to the audience that your tempo is off.

I had a moment of joy with my midi keyboard - I was really trying not to use it as I wanted to e able to have my gig fit in a backpack but once i started playing with them together i realised just how much better it is with a midi keyboard - just assign tap tempo to a key on your keyboard and tempo to one of the knobs for starters - highly worth it

Midi keys and knobs are ok, but what would be good for live performances (especially DJ sets) is something like what we have for scenes. A tempo UP and a tempo DOWN. maybe even selectable interval.

Just some ideas

I was just looking at the tutorial PDF on the main site and they seem to be suggesting that the live equivolent of 'nudge' and 'brake'on a turntable is to move the warp markers to bring an audio file in line if it's the same tempo but out - and move warp markers has arrow left'right as it's key command if you have the clip view selected...interesting idea....
