Tempo Options

A number of articulations in a lot of collections sync to your host tempo. Depending on which collection you are using, these can be runs, 16th or triplet repetitions, or even trills.

Most of the time these patches will automatically conform to your project tempo without you having to do anything. But in the instances where you want to change something, there are a number of options. The tempo options can be found in different places, depending on the type of patch you are loading. Multi Articulation Patches have them in the Settings View; Single Articulation Patches show them in the Performance View.

Tempo Options

Lock to Host

This option makes the instrument follow the tempo set in your host sequencer (or Kontakt if you are using Kontakt standalone). Capsule always calculates tempo-synced patches in real time. That means if you change the tempo while a note is playing, Capsule will adjust the tempo to the new value. This also works with tempo ramps, but there might be TimeMachine artifacts doing so.

Auto Tempo

If enabled, the script will automatically set the Tempo Slider to the best-sounding value for the current tempo.

Tempo Slider

This slider allows you to play the sample in double tempo, half tempo or a triplet feel.

Lock to Beat

If enabled, Capsule will synchronize the start of the sample to the next beat. This helps for example when playing multiple trills at the same time in perfect sync.

Manual Tempo

If the Lock to Host option is off, the instrument switches to Manual Tempo mode. Use the slider to set the tempo. If Manual Tempo is active, the instrument does not follow your host tempo.
You can also map the Manual Tempo slider to a MIDI CC in the Controller Table.
