1 Re­peated builds are even more dra­matic with ex­treme tempo au­to­ma­tion. In Live, go to Mas­ter and choose the Mixer and Song Tempo op­tions. Then set the val­ues in the Tempo Range boxes to the song tempo – 128bpm here – and 999bpm in the right box.

2 This sets the range of val­ues dis­played in the au­to­ma­tion dis­play. The red line at the bot­tom of the graph now shows our song tempo. Click the line to cre­ate two au­to­ma­tion nodes: one where the ef­fect should be­gin, and one where the orig­i­nal tempo re­turns.

3 Lift the sec­ond node up to the top of the graph, then hold the Alt key and push against the line to bend it into a curve. Lastly, set the global quan­tise to 1 bar, then, us­ing the Pen tool, draw a flat line at the bot­tom of the graph where you want the song’s orig­i­nal tempo to re­turn.
