Tempo change automation

Hello, I am new to Ardour so apologies if my question maybe requires just an obvious answer from you guys.

I am using Ardour version 2.8.12 I would need to change the tempo on the timeline so that I can incrementally speed it up/slow it down from point A to point B (without having to manually create 20 separate tempo changes in between the 2 points). I was looking for a functionality that allowed to draw an automation for this purpose, but it looks like automations can happen on tracks but not on the timelines, is that correct or am I missing the functionality somewhere?

Thank you in advance for your help.

You are correct, as of right now it cannot be done. I believe there is a feature request in Mantis about this, but it is likely more difficult than it seems to implement it my initial guess.


Thank you :slight_smile:

It would be nice if there was some external program that can do this, and syncing it with jack, you can have ardour recording and the other external program clicking the tempo you want.

If that external program exists, let us know xD
