Doubling metronome tempo

(Info) #1

I have a session prepared at 60bpm with live drums recordings. As this is a bit slow to record other instruments (guitars, vocals, etc) I would like to listen to the metronome at double rate, 120bpm. This is an often used trick to record slow songs because it gives more references to the ear. Apart from creating a “metronome” track with samples, is there a way to do this inside Ardour?

Why not just set it to 120bpm (and double the time-signature’s beats/bar)?

Alternatively, you can create you own “click track” with MIDI… It’s really quick to do, if you are familiar with MIDI at all. (If not, it doesn’t take much to learn.)
