How does it work?
- Select the range of notes over which the tempo change has to take place
- Open up the plugin from
Plugins - TempoChanges
- Staff Text: Optional staff text to be created at the start of the tempo change. Leave blank if undesired.
- BPM beat: Reference beat duration for both tempo settings below
- Start BPM: Tempo of the first note in the selection (in BPM beats)
- End BPM: Tempo of the first note after the selection (in BPM beats)
- Linear/Curved How the tempo changes over the selected range. When selecting Curved you can use the slider/spinner to indicate when 50% of the tempo change should be applied. A lower value means changing most of the tempo sooner; a higher value means most of the change will be applied later.
Apply. The plugin will now create invisible tempo texts on each segment within the selection and a final visible one on the first note after the selection with the resulting end tempo.
