Tempo Tap is used to record tempo information by tapping it with a MIDI keyboard, trigger, or some other MIDI device. Place the Tempo Tap FX after a MIDI input FX, arm the track for recording, and tap away.
Here's a step-by step walkthrough for using the Tempo Tap FX. The example begins after creating a new song and placing a single VST instrument track via the Tracks->Add MIDI Track command.
|1. Select a MIDI input for any MIDI track -- do this by hovering over the In FX on the desired track, pressing the right mouse button, and choosing your MIDI keyboard or other input device from the list.|
|(your MIDI keyboard should now be the track's input)|
|2. Click on the FX tab in the browser...|
|3. ...and drag to the MIDI output pin of the FX you just created, then release the mouse and select Tempo Tap from the menu.|
|(there should now be a Tempo Tap FX after your MIDI input FX)|
|4. Arm the track for recording, which enables the song's record button.|
|5. Press the song record button.|
Once you've completed these steps, repeatedly tapping any key of your MIDI keyboard should be translated into tempo information.
