The FX Unit Tempo has two modes, Automatic and Manual.
Automatic Tempo mode requires that the track on the deck/channel assigned to the FX Unit has BPM information. BPM information can be added to most tracks using the Track Analyzer.
Manual Tempo mode allows you to tap in the tempo yourself. To change to Manual mode, simply click ‘TAP’ until a BPM is established Tap the button on each beat to calculate the BPM. After you’ve tapped the first beat, you can switch to double time tapping, half time, start of each bar etc. The range is set by the first two taps, after that, you can switch to any steady rhythm you feel comfortable with – quarter notes, half note, whole notes etc.
NOTE: To return to AUTO mode, click and hold the Manual BPM for 1 second, or click the ‘X’ button next to the tempo display.
