    Changing an audio files tempo
    I have a song that I'm trying to adjust the tempo from 140bpm to 138bpm in Logic 7, how can I do that, it's too long for an apple loop and adjust region length to locaters doesn't work either. time machine didn't seem to do anything. I'm about to get Logic 8 soon.

    Hi K1, Time Machine and Adjust Region Length to locators should work. Is the tempo in Logic the same as the tempo of the audio file? What is the file type? Aiff, wav, etc. How long is the audio file/region? Is the Song Project End adjusted with enough space after the region end? Thanks Rounik

    these are full 6 minute songs, mp3 files, getting converted to aiff when imported into logic.

    Well, I forget with Logic 7 - but time machine should work fine. However, you may need to make sure you convert the audio files from mp3 to aiff again as Logic doesn't play well with compressed audio formats. So try to bounce the files to aiff and then re-import these versions into Logic. As far as making a dj style set - this isn't Logic's forte. If you want to change time and pitch in realtime (on the fly) then I'd recommend looking into something like Traktion of Ableton Live. Logic 8 has basically the same pitch and time correction as Logic 7, including the ability to create your own Apple Loops and then use the tempo global track to time stretch regions. Logic 9 has flex time and varispeed which could add something new and useful to your setup... but still Live may be better for your needs. Rounik
