    Lightbulb Why is tempo linked to selection of styles?

    Hi, new user here,
    Maybe I'm missing something but is there a way to keep the tempo from changing every time I change the style?
    I enter a song and just want to try it with different styles at the same tempo to choose the most appropriate style, or just for fun, but it keeps changing on style change.
    Thanks.
    Rob

    (I did try searching the forums but came up with nought)

    Hello Rob, no the tempos are an average tempo for each specific style, while many styles can be any kind of tempo (especially for advanced players,) others (like tango) are generally within a range of bpm so you will need to change the tempo after you change the style. It is probably easier for beginners the way we have it.

    Fair enough, not a big deal.
    Fantastic app by the way. Bit of a (playing) life changer.
    Looking forward to see how it develops.
    Thanks,
    Rob

    When I change backgound styles on a song, iRealPro changes the song's tempo to your default tempo for that style. I would like to be able to change the style and still keep the same tempo without having to re-enter it every time I want to change styles.

    The different styles are set to the recommended tempo so our users know how it should sound.
    You can change the styles in the song's settings and after you selected the style, set the tempo. The tempo won't change unless you change the playback style.

    The point is, when I change the style on a song, I don't usually want the tempo to change. If the two were un-linked, it would make changing styles easier...

    I brought this issue up some time ago. The change in tempo with change in style is often a pain in the neck. I usually decide on the tempo of a song before I settle on a style and often go from style to style (and having to reset the tempo) until I make a decision. One thing that I do to help me out is to use the text feature to write in the tempo at the bottom of each of the chord charts I use so that if the tempo is somehow altered by iRP I can quickly reset it.

    I actually put the tempo in with the title to accomplish the same thing....

    Great minds think alike…

    I also find the automatic tempo change a nuissance. I would prefer being able to Set the Tempo (just as we do with the Key Signature). As for indicating the tempo with text on the chart, I was able to type a "♩= xxx " notation previously, but newer versions have disallowed many of the symbols I frequently used before (which is another nuissance).
    There's two kinds of mistakes you can play: The ones you notice, and the ones somebody else might notice.
