Ground-breaking tap tempo in action

Just done another Minor Concussion videoclip. It was tricky – filming and recording audio at the same time.

When you tap once the ‘record’ LED comes on. Tap again, and it goes out; you’ve set the tempo.
Then – if it drifts out of time – you tap again and the tap tempo chip takes the difference between where it was going to pulse, and where you corrected it, and divides that by the number of beats since the original programming, and adds (or subtracts) the from the programmed time!
Then it makes that the new tempo – and continues from where that one correcting tap was!!

It’s a clever thing.

Of course you can tap it as many times as you want to correct it. Four in a row? Seven? Sporadic bursts? Whatever – it just loves to do maths!

Have a look at the Minor Concussion’s amazing tap tempo in action here. Recorded while playing through a Solasound Tonebender for distortion.
