Variously BPM in my project

Hi, I have a project set to 130 bpm. My loops but have variously, 140 bpm, 135 bpm. When you add sound to the launchpad, sound synchronization distracted - slow or fast my loop.... how? sounds are NOT synchronized, why?

Hi Majklan,

The samples you import are set at a specfic BPM. These samples will sound standard when creating a session at the exact same BPM. If the session has a different BPM than the sample that was imported, the application will attempt to speed up or slow down the sample to match the tempo. How it syncs up with the additional samples is dependent upon the editing of the sample prior to importing it.

Here is a video covering the Audio Import feature further:
