    The only reason i can imagine is, that you have warp turned on.

    If you record anything, you will have a certain speed (bpm) setting in Ableton. Let's say you use the default 120 bpm setting. When you record anything without using the metronome as a guide, you are never sure if the sound you are recording is at that same bpm.
    So if you record audio with a higher tempo into a set that has the tempo set to 120 bpm AND have Live set to automatically warp long samples, Ableton will automatically change the tempo of the recorded sound to the tempo that is set in that particular project.

    Theoretically speaking, all you would have to do is;
    -turn off warp of the audio you recorded.
    -select the part you want to render, using the locators
    -render the audio.

    However, if you rendered the audio, and then reload it into Ableton, the same thing will happen again! So go to the settings, and turn off "automatically warp long samples".

    If you are recording something that you play yourself, use the metronome when recording, and warp the audio afterwards. After this is done you can adjust the tempo of the Live project, and the sample tempo will automatically change too.

    I have noticed a tuning change when I try to export at a different sample rate. If my session was recorded in 48 and I try to bounce to 44.1 sometimes things dont come out pretty.
