How to sync an Ableton 120bpm sample with prerecorded audio at XXXbpm

I imported a singer and a drum machine on two audio tracks in Live 9. I don't know the exact bpm, but it's approximately 138bpm. (It could be 138.43)

Now I'd like to add some clapping flamenco, a sample in the Ableton clip library, recorded at 120bpm.

After experimenting with the length of the flamenco loop, and the bpm of the loop I was not able to discover a combination that synced the new percussion with the existing drum beat.

Is there a direct way to sync mismatched audio beats, especially if one of them is unknown?

    yes, you will need to warp the loop manually.
