In this lesson you will learn how to set up the Tap Tempo feature in Logic Pro. The ControlSkin takes advantage of Logic Pro's Tap Tempo feature with a dedicated key. This is a great feature for quickly tapping out the tempo of song ideas in moments of inspiration.
Although this lesson is exemplified using the ControlSkin keyboard cover for Logic Pro, the Tap Tempo feature works on any Logic Pro system as long as you have set up a key command representing the Tap Tempo function in the preferences menu.
You can set up the key command yourself by following the written lesson at the bottom of this page.
Setting up the Tap Tempo Key Command
In the Logic Pro menu, select Preferences>Key Commands.
In the top right hand corner of the resulting window, click in the search field and type the function you would like to set for the Key Command. In this example Tap Tempo is used.
Click on Learn by Key Position and hit the key on the keyboard you would like to set. Your key command will now be set up.
