Tap Tempo


Hello everyone,

Does anyone know how to add tap tempo to a patch? I plan to use the Organelle in a rock trio and need this to sync delays, etc to the song tempo on the fly.



Hey @korhanerel

Here is a simple one from the top of my mind:


Tab tempo.pd (865 Bytes)


Thank you!!! Actually I could have thought of this too, but but didn’t :smiley:


No problem. I prefer to just make stuff rather than think :slight_smile:

Thinking is overrated :star_struck::crazy_face::rofl:


I couldn’t have done this without thinking about it first. I’m slow. :wink:


Yeah, sorry stupid joke. I also thought about it, it was just a while ago, and now that you asked for it I thought I’d give it a go :slight_smile:

This is just simple one… And if you change tempo you probably have to tab it again. You could experiment with upgrading it so it is always “listening” to incoming tempo, like for example midi clock and it automatically adjust on tempo changes. But that would definately need more thinking to implement :slight_smile:


Hey I wasn’t offended or anything :slight_smile:

I just need tap tempo that I can use to change delay times while I’m playing live. I need this for a performance where I’ll be playing electronic drums in a rock trio (guitar/voice and violin/electronics), and plan to use some delay effects on some of the drum sounds.

thanks again


No worries :slight_smile:

I think this can do it for you in a simple way. Since most delays are milliseconds anyway, I think this is all you need. Maybe you can turn down the rst time from 1 second to maybe half second. That would make it easir to make a good tab on the fly(if you dont get the right tempo on the first tabs).


Cool. Thanks. I’ll try this as soon as I have the time.
