One of Apple's Logic Pro X 10.4 top key features is its powerful tempo detection feature, aptly named Smart Tempo. Join audio expert Joe Albano in this course, and get up to speed with this amazing new feature!
Logic Pro X has always been very good at manipulating time. And now with Smart Tempo, Logic takes its tempo manipulating capability to another level. It's now possible to record a music performance without a click track and have Logic create a tempo map automatically, or have Logic flex the recording to match the tempo of your project. This course, by Logic expert Joe Albano, explains everything you need to know about this powerful tempo detection/analysis feature.
To put Smart Tempo into context, Joe starts with a brief Logic tempo handling history lesson and gives some background on important tempo manipulation concepts. An in-depth description of the Smart Tempo Modes is next. Here, you discover the difference between Keep, Adapt, and Auto modes, and you see them all in context with real-life recording and editing examples. Then, there is a whole section on the Tempo File editor, where you learn to manually and precisely adjusts beat markers. Joe concludes the course by showing Smart Tempo in action, and by giving strategies to overcome some Smart Tempo limitations.
So don't miss a beat! Watch this 20-tutorial course by Logic expert Joe Albano, and see and hear how smart "Smart Tempo" really is!

This course on a new feature in Logic 10.4.1 will come in handy for several projects I have where tempo for certain instruments a re off due to latency issues between midi and outboard instrument audio tracks. Joe Albano does a fine job of explaining this new feature in depth and provides several examples of every aspect of it as well as it's limitations. This will be a great addition to the multi-instrumental artist, as well as those who spend their time in the studio, in making their music tight and on the beat! Time to correct those messed up tracks of mine! Thanks Joe!
