Hi! Is it possible to make a progressive acceleration by automation? I can't find the information

I used an empty clip on Master track with an automation on 'Transport - Tempo'. It works great but I need to play other clip in the same time at fixed speed, and the tempo acceleration generates troubles with playing, even in 'raw' mode, the grid doesn't follow the tempo, so the clip finishes too early.

the tempo setting on clip inspector would be a solution, but I have to automate it...

and no scripting function for that parameter...

you can use a modulator to automate the sample playback position (bitwig 2.4 sampler)

Oh, thank you! it works great. The only problem is that it's impossible to stop the sample in 'shot' mode, so I use ADSR with Sustain level at 100%, and a clip with a loop on a note to keep the 'key down', then I stop the clip to release.

nice workaraound! as far as I know logic is the only software with sample acceleration capability on audio clips, anyway!

ok. then impossible to automate or midi-control a stretch. I do it manually with the clip "tempo" box, but there remains the issue with the grid: if I accelerate, playhead stays in the same position in the window, despite the real position in the sample, then the clip is shortened and it stops when it arrives at the end of the visual clip.
