I am having a weird issue with my samples… Basically I took some of the full tracks I use for dj’ing, converted them to my octatrack and tried to mix the tracks using octatrack, same way like I do on cdj’s or turntables but I hit a wall.
No matter what I do, some of the tracks are having wrong tempo and I can’t get them to match nicely.
I know the situation sounds stupid but… I know that both tracks are 174BPM so I loaded these tracks (both are wav, 24bit, 44100khz) into a static machines, opened the audio editor, set the start to the downbeat and ensured that the bpm of the sample in the ATTR page is set to the expected 174BPM. I warped hundreds tracks in ableton, I create all the beatgrids in rekordbox and serato so this is a process I am familiar and know how to do it precisely.
One of the tracks is fine and it perfectly matches the metronome etc. while the other one (and about 2-3 among the others I tried so far) feels not right at all.
For some reason it gets timestretched (omg why???) even the attr is set to 174BPM, same like the project tempo and if I disable the timestrech, this track plays much faster than it should be (I’d say like 190-200BPM) - there is no pitch change set or anything obvious to me. If I mount the CF card and play the concerned wav, it sounds normal…
Am I missing a point somewhere?
Thanks for help!
