Join Matt Piper for an in-depth discussion in this video Tempo and time signature automation, part of Up and Running with Reason 7.
One thing that reason does extremely well, is stretch and…compress audio over a large range, with minimal audible artifacts.…To let you hear what I'm talking about, I'm going to play the track…that I have in front of me, which was recorded at 125 bpms.…And as it plays, I'm going to raise and lower the tempo.…As you could here it was really smooth, and natural sounding.…Now those tempo changes can be automated.…We can draw precise tempo changes into the sequencer.…
And I'm going to show you how to do that but before…I do that, I want to show you a related concept.…Which is time signature.…And I'm going to mute the tracks in the sequencer for the moment.…And here's the time signature indicator.…I'm going to turn on the click, and we'll hear the click in four, four.…Okay.…So, now, if I change to a different time signature.…By four.…Now you can hear the accent has changed, and you can…see that an extra beat has been added to each measure.…
However, if we listen to the music,…It hasn't been automatically arranged into a new time signature.…
