How to gradually change tempo of a clip?

Hello there,

 

I'd like to somehow make Live to gradually slow down the clip from say 120bpm to 0bpm and back. Both speed and pitch would have to change at the same time.

Just like you would slowly bring the speed of turntable braking with your hand down from 33rpm to full stop and after lifting hand from the platter it would gradually build up the speed back to 33rpm. 

 

Many thanks for your valuable input and suggestion.

Cheers,

Goran

    Well I know how to do the tempo part...but not the pitch part.

    For tempo all you need to do is press record and while your playing the song bring the tempo down at the speed you wish.

    Hi Electric_Newb,

     

    Thanks for your reply. What I tried to do is to map one fader on MPK49 to Global Tempo button (restricting the range from 20 to 120) and second slider to Transpose knob found in Clip properties, then move both sliders simultaneously.

    This works but the results are far from ideal. It sounds pretty grainy, harsh and unnatural. There has got to be a way for LP DJ's to achieve/mimic this sort of thing in Live. 

    Cheers,

    Goran

    I would change the clip warp mode to repitch, which ties tempo to pitch. Repitch does not interpolate, it only stretches the audio, exactly like a turntable would.

    Then you can map global tempo to your fav controller, or automate, etc...

    Check out the Live manual, sec. 9.3 Adjusting for Good Stretching Quality. It goes over all of the modes and their intricacies.

    If you just want to get a tape stop effect, there are some M4L devices and VSTs that emulate that.
