Hey Kris,

I was wondering if it would be possibly for us to create a way for the members to increase and decrease the speed of the Backing Tracks for lessons dynamically. Maybe a scrolling bar that increases/decreases the BPM, or a value input box for us to type our desired BPM in. This request is because, some lessons I need slower than the current available BPM. Also, with many lessons I would like to increase in smaller increments than is allowed, ie. I want to increase 5 bpm, but the next increment is 10 BPM higher. I could easily use my metronome to practice at the desired BPM, but I think we can all agree that practicing lessons to a backing track is much more satisfying/motivational than just a bland mentronome beep.
Thanks!

- John

I don't know is this is possible to do...Maybe if all backing were just midi files..but then they would sound not to good smile.gif

That idea is great but too complicated. As Bogdan stated, it would have to be a MIDI file in order to function like that.

Also I think practicing with a metronome can be satisfying/motivational too, it just depends on how you approach it. Try to look at it as a fun game where you have to play as precise and fast as you can.

Its been discussed before- it'd be very complicated to set up and would take some serious know-how (apparently).

Would be cool never the less...

The way i see it at the moment is: I increase tempo bit by bit on the metronome, with lots of hard work, then when i reach the speed of the next backing track- i get to jam out and have fun! Reward for my hard work...

cool idea, but remember that practicing with a metronome is cool too, you can hear clearly what your playing so you can quickly see if you're hitting a bad note .. you can also use a drum machine ..
Anyway if it's possible i agree that it would be a great idea.. but midi backing tracks aren't fun to play with . :s
