Import Audio Without Knowing or Changing Tempo

Sorry in advance if this is too simple a question.

I have several audio clips that I've pulled out of a Pro Tools session that are nothing more than layers of vocals in harmony.  - So they don't really have any transients and definitely not any beat.  They're just sound like a steady "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa..."

I want to add them as clips which I can loop during a live performance.  I know when I import them Live wants to have warp on in order to loop them but I seem to be getting some weird results as it's changing the tempo to what it "thinks" is correct.  Then I'm not certain exactly what the original tempo was.

Is there a way to import the clips without Live modifying the tempo at all and still loop them?

Thanks in advance.

    Not sure if you tried this yet. But go to preferences and find he option that says: 'auto warp long samples'. Turn that off and load the samples/parts. Live will then load those samples unwarped, in their original state.

    Turned off "auto warp long samples"... abelton still changes project BPM based on samples I import.


    Absolutely atrocious design decision.  What the hell is your design team thinking?
