The Tempo block is a Music Extension block and a Reporter block. Tempo reports the project's tempo. This block can be displayed as a Stage Monitor.

Example Uses

As this block holds how long drums and notes will be played, it is often found useful in music projects where they must sense how long an instrument will be playing.

Some common uses for the Tempo block:

  • Speed controls on projects that play music made with the Music Extension
when green flag clicked
if <mouse down?> then
point towards (mouse-pointer v)
set tempo to (((direction) mod (181)) + (20))
set [universal tempo v] to (tempo)
  • Loops that must stop once the tempo is at a certain amount
repeat until <(tempo) = [20]>
change tempo by (-1)
  • Sensing and showing how fast something is being played
when gf clicked
say (tempo)
point in direction (tempo)
  • Synchronizing with notes with adjustable tempo
