Chapter 8. Basic Audio Editing > Resizing an Event by Time Stretching

Resizing an Event by Time Stretching

The third mode for resizing an event, Sizing Applies Time Stretch, doesn't change the amount of the audio that the event plays or the place where the event plays it. Instead, it alters the tempo or duration of the audio to fit the new size of the event. This approach was introduced in Chapter 3 in the context of fitting a drum loop to the tempo of a project. To see how this mode works, you will shorten a one-bar line that does not fit correctly in the project (Figure 8.43). You will commonly need to do this when you have samples taken from CDs or vinyl that do not match the tempo of the song in which they will be used.

Figure 8.43. This phrase is one bar long, but it does not fit into a bar of the current project.
