GT-100: master BPM?
« on: December 29, 2016, 03:03:47 AM »
Hello all (and merry xmas / happy new year),

I noticed the following thing, I re-read the manual and parameters list but I couldn't find an answer.

The Master BPM setting is bound to a single individual patch. I didn't find a global BPM setting, to override the value set in patches.

This causes several issues to me. I have to duplicate patches when playing a certain song, in order to have the same BPM in all of them, otherwise, when switching patches:
- The Metronome, if enabled, suddenly changes tempo (I use this for practice)
- The delay and other modulation FX based on BPM (quarter note for example) go off
and so on...

Do you know of a way or work-around to set a global BPM value?

Thank you
Marco

There is no global GT-100 BPM....
The only work around for real-time BPM is to use an external midi tempo source.
Free "GR-55 FloorBoard" editor software from http://sourceforge.net/projects/grfloorboard/

... or duplicating patches like I do.
For example, I need patches 2.1 - 2.2 - 2.3 for a certain song, I duplicate them in the bank XY and set the BPM at the desired value for all of them.
Then, for another song, I need the same three patches (or different), I duplicate them in the bank XY+1, setting again the BPM value for all of them.
