Tap tempo and tempo nudge

Post by canton » Sat Feb 23, 2002 7:12 am

If you want to use LIVE to accompany a live DJ or performer, it's important to have tools that let you sync to them, instead of the other way around.

1) Tap tempo -- tap a key or midi control 5 times and it calculates the tempo and starts the clock on the 5th tap

2) Tempo nudge -- ability to temporarily "nudge" the tempo up or down by about two or three bpm. This is equivalent to the "bend" button on pitch-control CD players, or to dragging/pushing the record in the case of turntables. You do this when you've got your tempo right, but you're a little bit behind or ahead of the beat and need to catch up / slow down for a second.

tempo changes, i agree.

Tap tempo, and tempo nudge would be great.
