    Does anyone know how to set up tap tempo in Logic Pro x? I have read everything I can find online, tried the method that people describe and it does not work like it did in Logic Pro 9. I just want to set up a basic tap tempo like I used to in logic 9.

    Hi Tim,

    Just tested it out in Logic Pro 10.1.1 and it seems to work fine. There are two steps involved to get it working.

    The first is to assign a key command to the Tap Tempo function. It is unassigned by default.

    The second step is to open the tempo Interpreter window that is found In the Tempo submenu of the main Edit menu and set the parameters accordingly.

    This second step isn’t even strictly speaking necessary. Once you assign your key command, just tap four times on it and Logic will calculate the tempo and start playback at it; you don’t even need to open the Tempo Interpreter at all unless you need to adjust the default settings there.

    Hope this helps.
