Short key/Action for changing project tempo?


after a ten+ year hiatus I returned back to Cubase (Artist 8.5) lately.

I’m looking for a shortkey and an action to change the BPM. I seem to remember that this was possible with the Num-+/- key back then in the SX days.

Any help appreciated



Are you using Fixed tempo or the Tempo Track? Do you want to make a new Tempo Node and set its Value, or do you want to change the Init tempo (previous Node Value)?


new in 8.5 are key commands to set the tempo and time signature on the transport bar.

<shift+T> for tempo
<shift+C> for time signature.
