In most cases, BIAS Peak Pro 6 allows you to open an audio file with rhythmic content and automatically compute the tempo. Here are the steps:
1. Open an audio file with rhythmic content.
2. Make a selection of at least several seconds (the longer the selection, the more accurate the guessed tempo will be).
3. Once you have selected your audio, choose Guess Tempo from the Action menu. Peak does its calculations and your tempo is displayed in a dialog box.
4. Once the tempo is calculated, it’s possible to create a loop of a specific duration by clicking on the “Loop It” button, which takes the tempo calculation and automatically enters it into the Loop Surfer dialog box where it is easy to line up the start and end points to produce a perfect, seamless loop.
