Hi all,

I’m wondering if there’s an automated way to gradually change the tempo of a pattern in chain mode.  For example, let’s say pattern A is at a tempo of 90 and B is at a tempo of 130.  Rather than inserting a tempo change to 130 at the same bar pattern B begins playing, I’d like to gradually increase the tempo of pattern A from 90 to 130. 

I’m currently doing this “the long way” by inserting multiple tempo events near the end of pattern A so it speeds up to 130 by the time pattern B begins...it works, BUT...is very tedious and not very smooth.
Is there a quicker and smoother way to make this happen?

I searched all our Motif forums and learned that page 92 of the MOXF6/MOXF8 Reference Manual describes how to do this with the “Create Continuous Data” Event Job.  There’s an option under the “EventType” field to control “TMP (tempo)”.  Just what I was looking for!
Unfortunately, the XF version of “Create Continuous Data->EventType” does not offer TMP as an option. 

Is anyone aware of a work around to make this happen in our XF?

Thanks!

No:
Create Continuous Data for tempo doesn’t work in Pattern mode - not even in the MOXF - but does work in Song mode. Although about the MOX, this should provide some insight…

Yes  :-) :
If you convert your Pattern Chain to a Song, the Create Continuous Data Job can be applied to the Tempo track.

From Song Play mode…
Press [JOB] > [F3](Event)
Select 05:Create Continuous Data, press [ENTER]
A “Create Continuous Data” window will open
Set “Track” to “tempo” (just past “16")
“Event Type” will change to “Tempo Change”
Enter your desired Range, etc.

See page 160 of the XF Reference Manual.

A-ha!  So it can be done in song mode!

I was looking at the EventType rather than the track field...Thanks 5Pin :-)

Yes, the “Tempo Change” Event Type isn’t available until the Tempo track is selected.

Thanks 5Pin :-)
