recording old tape sample into live w/correct tempo.
I would consider myself a somewhat advanced live user, but I have just discovered a huge gap in my live knowledge.
What I'm tinkering around with is transferring/recording into Live old mini disk recordings of me playing piano. I have many riffs I would like to prepare for use in live. Primarily as one, two, or four bar loops.
What is the best way to go about this? Or should I ask " what are some ways to accomplish this?"
So I recorded a riff into a session slot- Maybe 10 seconds of audio. The project tempo was set to 90bpm, but the piano recording was NOT 90. So I dragged the session slot recording into arrangement and exported the audio as a wave.
I then opened a new live set and dragged the newly exported audio into live.
Now,.... I thought live auto detected the tempo for the first audio opened in a set,
and then matched all other audio/midi to that.
But when I loaded the audio, live's tempo stayed the same ; 90bpm, which was way off from what the actual exported piano audio is.
Am I making this too complicated? What am I missing? I have probably 100 old piano recordings I would
like to prepare for session slots in live.
Thanks in advance!
p.s, I'm a drummer, so trimming the recordings into even audio pieces I can use is quite easy for me.
