Hi All!

Bit of a query for you all. I'm a bit of a Cakewalk newbie. I've started a song at 140 bpm, so everything I have done is based on that tempo, including audio and some manual MIDI drums for basic bass and rim shot. However, now I've tried adding some standard MIDI drum loops, they are really twice as fast as I want. I suppose my song tempo should really have been 70 not 140bpm!

Is there any way of effectively halving the tempo of the MIDI drum loops, but not the rest of the song? 

Cheers.

Hmm, I think I've found something - by using smart tool, ctrl + shift, you can just drag the midi clip to twice the size and that does it. 

Isn't modern technology great!

Select your MIDI clips, then menu Process > Length, by 50%

make sure to check Durations if some of the drums are note-length dependent, like for example a reverse cymbal on some drum machines

 

EDIT: Emmm... to halve the tempo of these clips, choose 200% instead of 50 ;) (guess I need another coffee by now)
