Apple’s Logic Pro X powerful Smart Tempo feature was greatly improved in version 10.4.2. Join audio expert Joe Albano in this course, and get up to speed with everything this sophisticated tempo detection feature has to offer!
Logic Pro X has always been very good at manipulating time. With Smart Tempo, Logic takes its tempo manipulating capability to another level. It’s now possible to record a music performance (audio or MIDI) without a click track and have Logic create a tempo map automatically, or have Logic flex the recording to match the tempo of your project. In this updated course, Logic expert Joe Albano explains everything you need to know about this powerful tempo detection/analysis feature.
To put Smart Tempo into context, Joe starts with a brief Logic tempo handling history lesson and gives some background on important tempo manipulation concepts. An in-depth description of the Smart Tempo Modes is next. Here, you discover the difference between Keep, Adapt, and Auto modes, and you see them all in context with real-life recording and editing examples. There is a whole section on the Tempo File editor, where you learn to manually and precisely adjusts beat markers. You discover the new additions introduced in Logic Pro X 10.4.2, such as how to use Smart Tempo with MIDI and the enhanced handling of multitrack recordings. Joe wraps up the course by giving strategies to overcome some Smart Tempo limitations.
So don't miss a beat! Watch this 23-tutorial course by Logic expert Joe Albano, and see and hear how smart “Smart Tempo” really is!

Thanks Joe. I have to say trying to use this feature without tuition was hopeless. I do live multitracking without click (jazz musicians hate click) and I'm relived to see it can help in this situation. Very well presented as ever.

Excellent tutorial, highly recommended for those of us who want to be free of the click track.

The most thorough and useful presentation of Smart Tempo that I have seen. I purchased Logic Pro specifically for the Smart Tempo feature. However, using it was challenging but after watching these videos I think I got a great start and will get all the use out of it.

It’s a very good course with a lot of good information to learn.

This is a really solid and comprehensive explanation. I was confused before and now I'm not, which the highest recommendation I can give. (But please — next time check the tuning and intonation of the demo guitar. The consistent sourness doesn't impinge on the concepts presented, but it doesn't exactly brighten one's day.)
