Tempo Matching in any digital audio workstation is necessary to link the audio tempo with the sequencer tempo. Tempo locked audio makes it easier to edit to grid, add loops, sequence MIDI parts, quantize and much more. Tempo matched and locked projects are a joy to work with while projects that are not tempo locked can be a nightmare to work on.
Luckily, once you learn to match tempo, these skills transfer to most other DAWs. This all hinges on the audio that you are locking to having been recorded to a click or strict tempo. Later on in the course we will look at locking tempo to freely recorded audio tracks.
