    Is it possible to save a tempo for an individual preset? For the life of me I can't figure this out.

    For many applications, tap-tempo is fine. For others, it's way less than ideal. I just got my AF3, but even using the editor can't seem to figure out how to make the AF3 save a specific tempo for an individual preset.

    I want the AF3 to store a tempo, and then send that BPM via midi to my Timefactor and H9. Is this possible? Or am I just missing something obvious?

    Thanks so much. As previously mentioned, I'm new to the AF, but am LOVING it. Such a great unit.

    Yes you can do this. I'm not in front of the editor right now but from memory you need to turn off global tap tempo in the global menu to stop the global bpm in the same menu from overiding any individual preset values.

    Exactly right. On the GLOBAL tab of the editor change the Tempo parameter from Global to Per Preset.
    In each preset on the ECHO block set the BPM to whatever you need. But you also HAVE to select
    a time signature for at least the first delay tap. 1/4 note, dotted 1/8th note, etc.
    If not the preset will only look to the ms value of delay time instead of the BPM.

    Hi! I think there is a bug in editor’s delay settings or I just make something wrong.

    1. Set the GLOBAL Tempo mode at PRESET
    2. Choose a patch with a delay block and set Tempo 1 at Dotted 8ths, save
    3. Change the preset for something else
    4. Return to the delay patch - bang! - the delay time is wrong. Not in the settings but in what you hear. For sure it is not the time I have chosen i.e. BPM 115 or 391 mS but longer.

    It looses settings every time when 1) Global is at Preset mode and 2) I choose something in Tempo 1 in ECO bloc.
    When I set Tempo mode at GLOBAL then settings are saved correctly. Or when I set the Tempo 1 at OFF.
    I almost sure it happened before when I had AFB and AA3. Now I use AA6.
