BPM slow down of some wav files when importing into cubase

Hey guys, I have come across this a few times now and not too sure why.

Basically, when I import some wav files into a new project in Cubase, they play back much slower than they should.

I think It is usually when someone sends me a wav file exported from logic/macs… im not too sure as i haven’t done too much research yet, but I believe it has something to do with the way its exported in the bit rate between the two daws?

Can someone please explain this, and how to rectify it?



Make sure the samplerates of the file and your project match. Usually Cubase even asks to convert on import.
