Automatic tempo changes can be a useful tool for creating practice routines.
With PolyNome you can…
- Have a click that speeds up (or slows down) every X bars (or after a certain amount of time)
- Set Boundary tempos and choose what should happen when they are reached. For example, when the tempo reaches 250bpm PolyNome should :Stop, Start Over, Reverse tempo change direction, or Stay at the end tempo.
- Change tempo by a percentage (instead of a bpm)
NOTE: The Tempo Change options are a feature of Playlist Looping. They take effect each time the Playlist loops back to the top. You can turn this on in the Playlist Controls (the bottom row of a Playlist).
Here’s the recipe for creating Automatic Tempo Changes in PolyNome:
- Create a Playlist
- Add the Presets you want to use (you can just add a single preset if you like)
- In Playlist Controls turn on “Auto Advance”, “Play When Advancing” and “Playlist Looping”
- Choose the tempo change settings you would like
- Make sure none of the Presets in your Playlist are set to loop (or auto advance won’t work). You can change the repeats/timer for Presets in a Playlist by tapping the gear icon on the right of the row.
