Setting the Project Tempo from a Recording

You can calculate the tempo of freely recorded audio or MIDI material with the Beat Calculator and set it as the project tempo.


The Tempo Track is deactivated, that is, the tempo mode is set to Fixed.


  1. On the Project window toolbar, select the Range Selection tool.
  2. In the event display, make a selection that covers an exact number of beats of the recording.
  3. Select Project > Beat Calculator.
  4. In the Beats value field, enter the number of beats that the selection encompasses.

    The calculated tempo is shown in the BPM field.

  5. In the Insert Tempo into Tempo Track section, click At Tempo Track Start.


The project tempo is set to the tempo calculated from your recording.
