I am having trouble with accelerandos. It seems to pop up whenever I work with them. I enter a start tempo and an end tempo. I enter an accelerando and adjust the beginning and ending referents to match those tempos. It works fine…until I start adjusting the start and end tempos. Then accelerandos seem to take on a life of their own that can’t be tamed.
Start Tempo, q = 170
End Tempo, q = 190
Enter Accelerando and link to those two tempos
Edit Start Tempo to 175
Edit End Tempo to 190
During playback tempo accelerates to about 225 before coming back down right before the end tempo.
I delete the tempos and the accelerando and start over, figuring this will reset everything. No such luck. The same tempo artifact occurs.
I try to mess with the Time track nodes, but no matter what I do it’s as if this wild card tempo over 200 is a cat with well over nine lives.
This is a recurring problem in different projects when I try to edit accelerandos. Is this unique to me? Any suggestions for how to overcome it?
