How to Change Tempo in Cubase


Cubase is an audio editing program that allows you to create, edit, manipulate and export audio files for a variety of purposes. The Cubase software is meant to be used as part of an audio workstation, and can be used to import audio tracks from instruments or other programs. Once the audio you want to edit is imported into Cubase, you can use the special tempo editor in order to change the tempo of the music you are working on.

  • Open the Cubase software and click on the "File" menu option at the top. Select "Open Project" to open the latest project you have been working on. Once the project is loaded, click on the "Project" menu item at the top of the screen followed by the "Tempo Track" option that appears on the drop-down menu.

  • Wait for the tempo editor window to appear. This tool will allow you to change the tempo of an entire track or parts of a track. The tempo of the entire track you are working on will appear in the window as a graphical representation. You will also see a timeline at the top of the screen.

  • Select the "Draw" tool on the toolbar on the left side of the screen. Click on the line in the tempo editor with this tool and drag it up or down to change the tempo for the entire track. Just like with any other part of the program, click the "Play" button to listen to the track to preview your changes.

  • Click on any part of the line while using the "Draw" tool once to create a new tempo event. Click and drag this event up or down to increase or decrease the tempo. The track will then increase or decrease the tempo when it reaches this event. Create multiple events throughout the line to change the tempo throughout the track.

  • Click on the "Insert Curve" menu option that appears at the top of the tempo editor menu. Here you will see a "Jump" and "Ramp" option. "Jump" will automatically be selected and is the setting for changing the tempo immediately at each tempo event. Click "Ramp" to gradually change the tempo between each event.
