sure, i dont have pro, but im sure i can help out, when u go to beatmapper, it detects the first downbeat, but its usually wrong cuz its dumb. so just move that first downbeat detector to the actual place u want it to be. like in rrnn, the actual place where the beat should first kick in is on ONCE, and then after that just make it as close to the tempo listed on here, cuz they are all correct on here. sorry if it didnt help. words escape me right now

you dont need to use the beatmapper if youre trusting the bpms listed here.
just hit cancel if it comes up, go into track properties and change the bpm manually.

yeah, your best bet for finding a close enough tempo for an a capella in Acid is to:

beat-map the original, set your project tempo to it and lay down the a capella under it and sync the down-beats. then remove the original adjust your levels and then export it to a ready-to-use file.

(the last step might not be needed if the very start of the file is where it should be including empty space before the vocals come in.)

Hey,

Why don't you do it the old fashion way like I used to when I was a club DJ in the 80's? Take a calculator and a stop watch or clock. Press 1+1 and =, then once your watch or clock second hand lands on the 12 or th 6, hit the = button for every down and up beat for 30 seconds, then multiply that by 2 and that's your BPM (approximately).

I don't like to rely on software for this.

Also, you don't need a calculator, just keep count with your hand or foot by tapping to the up/down beats while timing it.

Just a thought from an Ol' School DJ.

Later,
JK

well if that's the case, why not just count the number of down beats for 6 seconds, then add a zero to the end result..

11.5 beats in 6 seconds = 115 beats in 60 seconds.

For some tracks we don't have the BPMs because they're stored with the masters which we didn't use. For others, like Car Thief we weren't able to accurately figure it out from the tapes used. We'll always try and include that information where we have it handy though.

i agree that FL would not be my choice of thing to remix with, but all you gotta do is double the bpm and your 16ths are 32's and double again and they are 64's
and so on and so on

A way to count BPM:

Use a stop watch and a calculator.

1. On the count of 1 start the clock.
2. On the count of 41 stop the clock.
(Let´s say the clock says 24 seconds)
3. Divide 2400 with 24 and you´ll get your result (100 bmp in this example)

the downbeat is when he says "Fifty" (cups of coffee) so if u didnt have the first beat hit when he said that, thats the prob.
