Syncing imported audio file with Dr Octo Rex
 
Hi there
I hope there's someone who can help me with this. I have imported an acapella audio file and would like to use a Dr Octo drum loop with it, but I can't seem to find a loop to fit the bpm of 138. Is there anyway I can change the tempo of the Dr Octo loop to fit the audio clip? Any help is very much appreciated. Thank you.

Are you sure the imported audio is 138BPM?
A rex loop would follow the tempo set.

That's what I thought too. But it's not in time and I googled the bpm for the song and got 138bpm. If I try to increase the tempo ( on the thing on the bottom!) it increases the song speed, so it can never catch up!

If you start Reason, set the speed to 138BPM and import the audio file.
Activate "click" and start the sequenser.

Does the audio match the click?

If you want to match the audio to the speed you can hold Ctrl and drag the audiofile to left or right. You will see a small clock icon when activated correctly.

Look at page 169 in operation manual and Tempo scaling clips..

OMG! You are brilliant. Changing the tempo before importing the song worked a charm. I can't thank you enough. I have searched everywhere and couldn't find a thing on that. I love you. ( I'm a girl by the way)!
