I would like to select a range of different tempos and change them by a percentage faster.
Say I had a song mapped and find that a section with many tempo tweaks just needs to be moved up or down by a small percentage. How is this accomplished? I find very little on tempo editing in the manual.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Do you want to change the entire track so that it conforms to one BPM?

I would use the bend tool to move the audio into place.

I do this when I sample from old track on which the drummer was sloppy. I use the bend tool to snap them to the grid.

No, I already have the entire arrangement set up to work with time stretching, so I just want to select a range of tempos that ramp up and increase the selected range by a percentage up or down. This would maintain the ramp (Accelerando) shape but increase the tempos in the selected range by a percentage. I hope this makes it clearer, I hope. I have been editing each step in the ramp, tedious indeed.
Any ideas, anyone?

Not possible yet, as we don't even have accelerando or ritardando ramps.

S1V2 no can do? Disappointed, I thought I was just missing a simple command.
So I guess I should be grateful that S1V2 at least has a pencil tool that draws steps to the snap grid resolution!
I would be nice to have some basic editing tools for tempos.

Even better to have the ability to percentage offset any given ranges with a offset tempo track above the normal BPM tempo track. One that you could cut and adjust sections to a fine offset percentage. This would make quick work of complex tempo map tweaking. I would love a feature like that!
There I go day dreaming, better get back the tedious task.

Thanks

You can select multiple of those steps and change them together.

With the arrow tool in the tempo view, click in empty space and draw a rectangle with the mouse around the steps you want to edit.
Then click & drag at the top edge of one step to change all steps by the same bpm value.

Thank you Sir!
I remember trying that and it just changed the one segment below the cursor.
I'll give it another go.
I had a feeling it was in there, thanks.
Is there a control key for higher accuracy?

But wouldn't you want to raise/lower by percentage instead of a bpm offset?

Yes, Shift.

I agree, that seems to be more appropriate. Should be easy to change ...

That would be fantastic! Do I need to submit a feature request for this?

That's not necessary, it will be in 2.0.4 (likely in January).

You guys are great! Thanks again!
It is the great initial tempo map and arrangement that brings the magic!
Looking forward to Version 2.04!
