I added it to mine but you should add a midi in and out so you can have the option to put it on a track with an instrument.

Thanks joshspoon, i hadn't thought about that as I use it on my Master channel all the time. I have been working on cleaning up the interface a little bit to make it look nicer and trying to get the panic button feature working. I will release an update hopefully in the next couple of days with some of the new stuff.

New version up - minus the panic feature, still working on that

added the Panic feature and updated UI. going to try adding curves to teh tempo ramp and fix a bug with the disco skin in Live.

This is great man. Very useful.

Wondering if it'd be possible to add an option to 'snap' to a different tempo when the next bar hits? No gradual change, just immediate switch in between tempos. I could think of a few instances that'd be helpful. Thanks

Are there any instructions on how to use this?? I use Ableton in a band and each scene is a song with our click and backing track clicks. I don't need it for that but we have a few cases where a scene is a medley of 3-4 songs bolted together within the backing track clips that make up that song (i.e. each clip is a compilation of the medley songs). So I want to be able to change the tempo at the transition to each song in the medley. The device seemed pretty intuitive at first, and I can make it do one tempo change but then it won't do any subsequent ones as the clips are progressing. AND, sometimes the Tempo Adjust doesn't activate and I have to trigger the Scene an additional time or to for the Tempo Adjust to actually adjust. (Thanks in advance.)
