Tempo Magic Pro app review: change the BPM of any music track

Reviews

Introduction

Whether you’re a runner, a DJ, or just curious, this is a very interesting little app for your iPhone and iPad that you can use to adjust the tempo of any audio track without affecting its pitch at all; perfect for syncing up songs for seamless playback.

The best music-making apps for your iPhone

I really like the idea behind this app and I can see it having great application for those of you who exercise on a regular basis. I’ve never been a fan of ‘remixes’ of songs but this could make for some very interesting up-tempo versions of ballads and other slower pieces of music.

On the other hand, you could slow down some otherwise upbeat tracks to see what they sound like brought way down to a lower tempo. Either way, I think you’ll find this app to be entertaining and incredibly useful overall.

Marching to a Different Beat

Tempo Magic Pro is capable of accessing any and all non-DRM audio files directly from your iTunes Music Library before presenting you with options for adjusting their tempo without making any changes to their pitch.

This is great because it means that you won’t be turning your favorite singers into horrible squeaky, high-pitched sounds (although I guess that might be pretty funny to some).

Create a Playlist With Uniform BPM

I think my favorite feature in this app is the BPM Lock Mode. With this, you can take playlist filled with songs that have all kinds of different tempos and then “lock” them all to a specific tempo of your choice, allowing for more or less gapless playback.

What’s more, you’ll be pleased to know that background audio playback is also fully supported. This allows you to continue listening even with the app minimized and your device locked, which is perfect for runners and gym-goers.
