Adjusting tempo changes in Beat Mixing

RecordForAll generates four tempo boxes for each track that uses Beat Mixing. Here's where RecordForAll puts them by default:

See below

To change the tempo of one tempo box

You can change the sound of your beat mix by adjusting tempo boxes, with the lines between the tempo boxes representing the change in tempo over time. If you want the same tempo throughout the track, set all of the tempo boxes for the track at the same BPM.

  1. In the lower part of the Timeline, find the gray tempo box associated with the track whose tempo you want to adjust.

  2. Right-click the tempo box, and choose Edit.

  3. Type the exact BPM you want, and press Enter.

To change the length of time between tempo boxes

You can direct RecordForAll to take more or less time going from one bet per minute to another.

Tips

  • If you want a more gradual change in tempo, move the tempo boxes or sprockets farther apart; for a less gradual change, move them closer together. (For information on using sprockets, see Adjusting the overlap between tracks.)

  • If you want to move a tempo box that is lined up with a sprocket to the left or right, move the sprocket.

  • You can move any tempo box (even those lined up with a sprocket) up or down if you want to change tempo at that point.

To change the BPM of a track

  1. In the Playlist, right-click the track whose BPM you want to change, and click Adjust Playback Speed.

  2. Adjust the Playback speed or BPM with the slider bar, or type the new speed and click OK.

To restore the original RecordForAll BPM value

You can restore a track's BPM to the value that RecordForAll originally detected and reverse any manual overrides.

  1. In the Playlist, right-click the track whose BPM you want to change, and click Adjust Playback Speed.

  2. Click Reset and then click OK.
