Figure 145. Tempo track.Your project can incorporate all kinds of tempo changes, including instant changes from one tempo to another, gradual increases (accelerandos) or decreases (ritardandos), and almost any other type of change you can imagine.A recording can sometimes sound mechanical if the project has a single static tempo. The tempo in a natural human performances tends to drift slightly, which can produce more musical and interesting results.
The Process > Fit to Time and Process > Fit Improvisation commands can also be used to introduce tempo changes. For more information, see Stretching and shrinking events and Fit Improvisation.
Note: Tempo changes have no effect if the clock source is set to MIDI Sync, because Cakewalk follows the external tempo. For more information, see Synchronizing your gear.
