    Okay soo.... I'm not new to logic but I don't use the audio part of it much (haha sounds like the whole thing but that's not what I mean) I mean I mostly do midi stuff and so don't have a great understanding of how it handles actual sound files.
    So here is what happened. I was working on a project and I needed this bit from this other song I made at one point. So from the browser I found it and drug it in. Then I played it and it was speed up. Now this make sense (To a certain extent) as the temp of the song was like... 80 or somewhere around there and the temp of the project was 111 (Also the time signature is different but that shouldn't really make a difference) but I don't want it to do that. Can I... Disable the temp lock for part of the project or something? Keep in mind that this was an exported MP3 not a logic file or midi file that I was dragging in.

    Thanks in advance :)

    tempo changes

    find the "GLOBAL TRACKS" (upper left corner of the arrange window), click on the arrow...
    see the TEMPO line? play with that... then (perhaps most important) read the manual.

    No no. I know how to change the tempo, I do it all the time. That's not at all what I mean. I can't have the tempo be different there as other things are there. I'm talking about detaching the audio from the tempo. So when I change the tempo it doesn't effect the audio at all. This should be possible. (And yes I could read the manual but this is generally faster. Everyone who asks a question on a forum could get the answer elsewhere but there is not crime in asking. Also I have read most of the manual in the past and don't feel like reading it again for this little piece of info).

    Awesome. I figured it out. If anyone wants to know there is a check box in the upper left hand corner under the inspector (It's under the name of the audio file). The check box says "Follow Tempo" this is what I was looking for. Can't believe I didn't see it. Thanks for you help (Sarcasm btw)
