tempo detect and the BPM meter give different readings


Recommended Posts

Why don't you just try both tempi in Logic, turn on the Click and listen which matches more closely. Note: SMPTE-lock your region first, with the very first transient of the first beat on position 1 1 1 1.



To lock an object to its current SMPTE position


1. Select the object.

2. Do one of the following:

* In the Event List, Hyper Editor, and Piano Roll Editor: Choose Functions > Lock SMPTE Position.

* In the Arrange window: Choose Region > Lock SMPTE Position.

* Use the Lock SMPTE Position key command.


Listen some more, fine tune until it matches.

I never use BPM metering thingies, so I can't explain the difference you encountered.
