Slowing down during conversion


I encountered an issue while importing audio using the function “import audio from another project”. the current project is at 48 kHz, the one from which I’m importing the file it’s at 96 kHz. after the conversion, the audio has been slowed down and turned down in pitch.

however, if I first export the file from the 96 kHz project and while exporting I convert it to 48 kHz, the problem doesn’t occur. the track is successfully converted.

is there anything that I missed doing?
