How to use tap tempo ?
« on: June 08, 2017, 10:00:30 AM »
Hi,

Can't figure out how to use the tap tempo on the Tempest.

How to have it working?
Tried several combination of keys with shift and so on, had a look in the manual, searched the forum, but couldn't find any info about this.

Might be simple answer but if somebody can help me, would be great.

Tap Tempo behavior: Shift On + Play, Shift Held + Play—With Tempest’s
default behavior (Shift Held + Play), must be held to tap the tempo. Otherwise,
5
Play starts/restarts the Beat, whether Shift is on or not. When set to Shift On +
Play, Play is used to tap the tempo when Shift is either on or held down.

This is from in an additional manual pdf found here

I would say your welcome but I didn't help. I just wanted to break the 200 post mark;)

Glad it worked out for you!
