how can I avoid time/BPM alteration to audio reference track in Live?
My question is about how to avoid any time/BPM alteration in Live on imported audio MP3 of a backing track I am going to use as reference and build upon in Live.
Live is so smart that when i drag in the audio backing track file, it sometimes (not always) appears to be mapping the audio clip to whatever the default or current BPM is.
But, I need to make sure that the timing and tempo stays locked to the original track. Is there a way to ensure that? Thanks in advance!

Above concludes my question, but here’s a little background in case it comes up.
My hobby is to make stripped down, acoustic music tracks for folks to sing over for karaoke performances and the like. I have been using Logic Pro X on Mac to drag in an mp3 of the original or karaoke backing track; layer on a midi piano track, acoustic guitar via mic; then drop out the backing track and export MP3 as an acoustic version. It’s important that my time stay locked onto the original, because sometimes i feed these tracks into a karaoke site engine so that they can be locked into the vocal/lyrics sync of the original.
I am moving this process to PC now and, as a Live 9 standard owner, want to do this in Live and not Cubase. I have owned Live from when I used to do more ambitious beats making and multi-tracking. Everything is setting up great, no midi latency, audio/mic handling is great – there is only one aspect confusing me. Live is so smart that when i drag in the audio file, sometime it appears to be mapping the audio clip to whatever the default or current BPM is.
