Hi guys,

Just got an idea about feature into musescore. I make a mockup with this idea consisting in adding a Tap Tempo button near the BPM selection when creating a score. You can find the tempo by clicking repeatedly on the button.

See attachement for a more precise idea ;-)

Interesting idea.

It seems to me that it would be better to assign the switch to a key on the keyboard rather than the mouse. As a keyboard player I really can tell the difference. :) Great project.

If such a feature were to be implemented, probably;y it makes sense to do it in a way that it can be accessed from a tempo text as well as in the new score wizard, as it would be at least as important in setting tempo after score creation. Perhaps even during playback.

That's what my plugin is about.

I would like to see also a global tempo change :
the user changes one tempo text and all the tempo texts are changed proportionality, so that the "tempo structure/ratios" of the score stays unaffected (so incl. the tempo texts added by the TempoChange plugin).

Regarding the playback tempo, I would definitely keep that separates from the score tempo.
I would be a merely "Play at : [ 50 ] %". So that it doesn't affect the tempo structure/ratios of the score.
