Bpm master

Postby Bobbyswerd » 07 Sep 2018, 21:34

So I am on a gig now and I have set a bpm master on a colour step up shape. When I am tapping in the tempo of the song it’s way too fast. The master does have a x1 underneath it but it’s way too fast. Can anyone explain to a sleep deprived stressed fellow lampy. @niclights

Hi Bobby! Reading between the lines I would guess that you need to set the beat count to 'Match to Spread'.

To adjust this on a live shape go to [Shapes And Effects], [Shape Generator], [Edit], select the shape you want to edit and press <enter> then:

if running 10.1:

- [Beat Count]
- [Match to Spread]

or if running 11.0:

- [Adjust Beats and Cycles]
- Touch the middle of the wheel display A or press wheel A @ button
- [Match to Spread]

If you want to adjust the multiplier for the BPM Master rather than change the shapes it is connected to, you can do this by:
  1. Selecting the Playback Options softkey followed by the BPM Master.
  2. Toggling the fader option so that it controls the Multiplier.
  3. Moving the fader to the middle to level match and then down to the desired level.
  4. Toggling the fader option back to BPM (assuming you want this).
In v11 you can press View/Open, select the BPM Master and the set the Speed Multiplier in the Master Options window that opens.

That being said, Nic's solution is probably more correct and better in the long run.
