Using Live's Tap Tempo can be quite clunky and it's also not what most singer/songwriters have in mind. What if you want Live to follow your tempo, not vice versa? This is where "Relative Tap Tempo" comes in.
In the last tutorial I explained how to achieve time signature and tempo changes in the Arrangement View. The latter only works with newly warped clips and you can only achieve abrupt tempo changes. In this tutorial I will show you two options how to create exact tempo changes in the Arrangement View that also work with clips that are unwarped or have custom warp markers. Both also offer gradual tempo changes.
In the last tutorial I explained how automatic tempo and time signature changes can be achieved in Live's Session View. So what if you needed this for Arrangement View? Here's how...
