bpm - tap tempo?

Post by monoben » Sun Sep 20, 2015 2:50 am

Hello, is there a way to use a midi controller to tap the tempo into sunvox? I've got a AKAI LPD8 here, do you reckon I might be able to use it for that?

Nope, there's no way to tap tempo in Sunvox, to my understanding. If you need to tap the tempo, you can just use a tempo tapping website to do it, though.

Yea, but you can't sync Sunvox with a temp tapping website.

No, you can't...? What does that have to do with anything?

One can use a website to tap the tempo you want, and then put it into Sunvox.

Oops. :unknown: I hope I didn't come off rude. I just don't believe that is what he/she is asking for.

you dont need external tool for tap tempo bpm
just follow the following steps :

1. create an input module and a sampler module ;
2. link input to samper ;
3. in sampler module activate the option mono rec ;
4. start recording and clap the beats of your tempo, say 9 times ;
5. go to the waveform, normalize it (if needed), zoom in enough and delete the silence from the begining until the first clap ;
6. also delete the sound from the beginig of the last clap until the end of the recording ;
7. still in the waveform view, go to in the 'menu-properties-resample with new length' and note the length proposed ;
8. make sure how many claps you still hear in your recording (normally, there will be one less than you recorded) and calculate 60*44100*audibleClaps/length ;

you can use this calculation also for finding sample accurate values of the bpm of a song you want to remix in sunvox

once you became expert in this operation, you will do it very fast

Nah, it's cool. I just thought that they wanted to get the tempo that they had "in their head", planned for their project, in BPM easily.

EDIT: Hope I didn't come off as rude, either, haha. "What does that have to do with anything?" could sound pretty rude.
