    help with tempo
    You guys rock with Logic. I need to find the tempo of an imported audio file (song). How exactly would I do that? I'm using Logic Pro 9. Thanks.

    Hi definfected, Thanks for the kind words :) In Logic 9 import the audio file into the Arrange area. Then with the region selected choose Audio > Detect Tempo... or Options > Tempo > Adjust tempo using beat detection... or cut a perfect 4 bar loop (that is 4 bars of the region - not 4 bars relating to Logic's grid). Set the cycle locators to 4 bars of Logic's grid and choose Options > Tempo > Adjust Tempo using region length and locators :) Rounik

    ... or, on the channel strip of the audio track in question, insert a BPM counter plugin from the metering section. If it is electronic music, the BPM rarely varies and as a result, I tend to use a tap tempo widget to roughly get my way there. If it is a live recording and you want to preserve the subtle timing changes, then creating a tempo grid is the way forward. Cheers, John
