Tempo Operations

  • Graphic Tempo Editor: to view the tempo operations, click the little arrow in the tempo ruler.
    • Tempo events are visible when the conductor icon is enabled on transport window.
  • Tempo Change: In order to make tempo changes, we need to always enable the “conductor” icon in the Transport Window.
    • Once we type the changes on certain cars, we can drag the “Tempo Change” icon in the Tempo ruler up to go faster or drag down to slow down.
    • Option Click: gets rid of tempo changes in a similar way we work with our markers or we can select the tempo change icons and delete them by delete/backspace key or clearing them under Edit Menu or short cut of (Com B).
