Workflow to fix tempo of many drum loops

Hi Everyone,

Let’s assume you have 200 drum loops all recorded at varying tempos . I have all the loop named with a cycle marker and can export with their names/IDs. You want to fix all the tempos to say 120 bpm. What is the best way to do that?

The end result/output of the process:

  1. All the new loops are quantized to gride (1/4 or 1/8)
  2. The tempo of each file is 120 bpm.

My second question is that how would the workflow change if loops have varying time signatures (4/4, 3/4, 5/4, 6/8 …)

Any help would be appreciated.


If you import them, set the Project Tempo to 120BPM, enable the Musical Mode on all of them and export them, you would get all of them in 120BPM.

Only if the file tempo for all files is 120 bpm, and only if not, Cubase has to detect the correct tempo for each and every file.
