Finding the tempo for a vocal stem.


Recommended Posts

There are several ways, depending on the file. I would probably do this: make a cycle area of a section (i.e. 2 bars) and adjust until it loops with a proper groove, so you know you exactly have 2 bars of the radiohead acapella - which obviously is not exactly 2 bars in the ruler (yet).


Now select the acapella region and choose Region > Split > Split Region by Locators.


Then adjust the cycle area to now be exactly 2 bars in the ruler.


Choose Options > Tempo > Adjust Tempo using Region Length and Locators.


Logic will find your tempo. You can discard the two regions on either side of the selected region, and resize the remaining (selected) region to get your full vocal.
