Which timestretch in Cubase 8.5 on a stereo WAV?

I have song here of 100 bpm which I would like to speed up to 102 bpm. It’s a stereo fully mastered track, 16 bit 44.1.

The song is around 3 minutes.

Which timestretch method/setting in Cubase 8.5 is the best take on that track?

Thanx.

I’d probably just let music mode handle it and enter the tempo as 100… then increase it to 102.

Thank you for your reply.

Will music mode also work well if you have a few seconds silence before the song starts? Or, is it necessary to have the song, that is the beats, exactly on the grid of 100bpm?

Silence at the start is fine

OK, thanx. I’ll try that.
