You can access the BPM Parameters of an Audio file in the Trakkutter by clicking on the BPM Parameters icon. When you click on the BPM parameter icon, a window appears displaying the BPM and Parameters for the current segment on this track.
BPM calculation is not an exact science and occasionally the software may experience some difficulty in calculating the precise BPM figure of a audio file if the audio content does not contain a clear beat structure. If you believe that the calculated BPM figure that is shown on the file is incorrect, you can change this figure by clicking on the BPM Parameters and change it manually. The BPM Parameters icon is located on the Track Name in the Mixing Window and can also be found in the Segment Properties for that file. Click the Segment Properties icon to access the properties for that file.
TrakAxPC will preserve the pitch by default when audio content is played at an adjusted BPM rate i.e. stretched. Best audio quality results are achieved by using the high-quality stretching engine. However, high-quality stretching can place a significant strain on your CPU if numerous files are stretched simultaneously. The high performance engine is less demanding and produces acceptable quality.
If you are not happy with the BPM figure that has been calculated for this file, you may change it here.
NOTE: Any changes made here are applied to every reference to this file in all your mixes.
You can also adjust the BPM (Beats per Minute) of a file. You can control the tempo of the file using the Tempo Pot. The higher the BPM the faster the tempo that the file will play. To adjust the play rate with your mouse, click and hold on the Tempo pot and move to increase / decrease the BPM.
The Tempo Field shows the current tempo of the mix. You may type the desired BPM (Beats per Minute) figure into this field.
To restore the media to its original BPM / Play Rate, click on the “Restore Original Tempo”.
The “Preserve Pitch” icon is enabled by default so that the pitch is maintained when the BPM is adjusted. To allow the pitch to change with the tempo changes to experience the"high pitch” or “slow wow” sounds, then just deactivate the Preserve Pitch icon in the Trakkutter
You may also use keyboard key [P] to toggle this action on/off.
Note: BPM & Pitch play a vital role in audio and video creation, so we strongly advise you watch the tutorials on Understanding BPM & Global Tempo videos
