Hi there,

I'm new here, thanks for having me :)

I'm trying to do a cover of a song: I'm lost without you, by Blink 182.

I am trying to get the exact tempo of the piano being played. I am using studio one as a DAW and I am putting the keys manually, however, sometimes the keys being played, they are either slightly too early or slightly too late, when compared to the song.

So it means, that I'm going slightly off tempo and this bothers me as a perfectionist.

Any tips on how to get the exact piano tempo of a song, that changes between one key and another?

Many thanks!

One way would be to take a phrase (or the entire piece if possible) and count all the notes in it (reduced to quarter notes or eighths perhaps) and time that section. For example,48 quarter notes in 32 seconds means 1.5 quarter notes per second or 90 quarter notes per minute.
