Hallo,

I apologize for posting twice the same subject, but it is still unclear to me how to solve this problem.

When importing an audio file, the tempo is increased drastically:

 

- Keep Tempo is enabled

- sample rate (whether it's the same or different then the project) it doesnt seem to affect

- Manually changing the tempo doesnt affect the region either

 

Im really clueless :roll:

Any help would be so much appreciated

Thank You!

Oh, I see... I converted it in .wav and in .aif using different online converters and everytime I imported it in Logic it got stuck. I had to quit Logic several times now. Also the size of the files went from 9 MB b to 54 Mb

Maybe I should download a converter that works well with this?

Yes, is this exactly what you would expect. MP3 is a compressed format, meaning it only stores the bits which 'make sound', so it's a lot smaller than an uncompressed file, like WAV or AIFF. I'd guess the file is around 4-5 minutes? 54MB is within expected parameters.

 

It might not be obvious to you how to use Quicktime to convert your file to a format Logic/Catalina is happy with. I'd recommend downloading Audacity, opening your MP3 file in that and going File -> Export -> Export as WAV. Using that output file in Logic shouldn't cause you any problems.
