Time stretch can be used to change the tempo of individual regions to non-specific tempo (BPM).
How to use Time Stretch:
- Hover over the bottom right side of the region
- Press and hold Alt/Option, you will see a two-way arrow
- Press the pointer and drag forwards/backward the region to increase/decrease the tempo. This can be done as many times as you need.
- Listen to hear if you’re satisfied
NOTE: Make sure to turn on/off snap to grid depending on if you want to drag the region to snap or be dragged more smoothly. If you want it to snap, make sure to zoom in when adjusting the region to get more accuracy.
If you want to change the region to a specific BPM, we, unfortunately, don’t have a button/function yet for that. In the meantime, you can follow the steps below as a workaround.
Here's an example of how to do it:
Say you have a file in 140 BPM that you want to slow down to match a project that is in 120 BPM.
- Start a new blank project and set the tempo to 140 BPM.
- Import your audio file and change the tempo to 120 BPM. A popup appears, asking if you want to adjust your audio data to match the new tempo. Click "Adjust".
- Next, export the individual audio track.
- Exit your project and return to your profile page.
- Open the other project in 120 BPM that you were working on.
- Import the audio file into your project. Depending on how close the starting point of your audio file was to the first downbeat of the music in it, you might have to do some fine editing in order to make sure it lines up and plays completely in sync.
To make sure to be able to edit the details, turn off snap to grid mode and zoom in real close when making the edits.
