This can come in handy if you happen to have a song with multiple, changing tempos. While most songs stick to one tempo, there are some songs that change tempos. You could also record multiple songs in one session, with each song at a different tempo. The Tempo map is the green bar in the timeline. Click on the small arrow to the left of Tempo to expand its view and open up the Tempo map. Say, for instance, you have two different songs in the same session. Song 1 is at one tempo and Song 2 is at another tempo. Place the play marker at the beginning of the second song and then click the small plus sign that is associated with Tempo to the left of the timeline. This will bring up the Tempo Change dialog box. Make whatever changes you want to make to the BPM (beats per minute) and click OK. You can also change the Tempo of a small section of a song and have it return to its original speed by grabbing the Pencil Tool in the top tool bar. For this tutorial, Line is selected. With this tool, you can map out your tempo by clicking and dragging across the Tempo timeline.? Begin at the section of the song where you would like the tempo to slow down and click and drag to make a downward line.?
