tempo + and - buttons
« on: September 24, 2022, 03:42:30 PM »
iíve been suspicious of the + - buttons for tempo on my t4.
i played a t5 and it confirmed my negative opinion about my particular t4.

other than the obvious - press + to increase tempo and press. - to decrease tempo.
what other button pushes are part of the design of the two buttons ?
iíve seen - while moving the tempo between songs - tempos jump backwards by 10 bpm
i know press both buttons simultaneously creates the default tempo immediately
but iíve seen a number of frustrating tempo changes ( as iím pushing buttons ) that at first i assumed
must be intentionally designed. to eg jump forward or backward

my recent more positive experience with T5  causes me to ask
Please provide ALL button push options that are designed into the two
buttons .

1) push both. = default tempo
2) please name any others

thank you
I use T4 as a drum machine. Playing my own acmp and bass. MIDI songs are my latest interest. If anyone wishes to share knowledge on MIDI songs let me know.

1. Push + and -  simultaneously = default termpo
2. Push either momentarily = raise or lower tempo by 1
3. Push and hold either = raise or lower tempo continuously. Be careful not to linger on the button and cause this inadvertently if you don't want to see jumps.

Hi John,

As already mentioned, you should make sure that you only press the tempo buttons momentarily to change the tempo in increments of 1. Another option is to press one of the Tempo +/- buttons momentarily (so that the Tempo pop-up window appears) and then use the Data Dial to set the desired tempo. (On newer models, the tempo function is actually on the data dial by default (when the home display is shown), so you don't have to press a tempo button beforehand.)


Best regards,
Chris

➪ Everyone kept saying "That won't work!" - Then someone came along who didn't know that and just did it.
➪ Never put the manual too far away: There's more in it than you think! ;-)

I'm going to assume the T4 and T5 are functionally the same with tempo change buttons

My experience is, the T5 tempo change buttons are a very superior experience.
What are yours?
For context - i use the tempo buttons very frequently on a gig.
