# Loop sample bpm and track bpm fit

If we load a 128 bpm loop into a track that is originally set to 126 bpm, to adjust the loop length to the pattern length we can change the pitch in - 0.3 and it will fit. I couldn’t find a way to adjust it when the difference of bpm is an odd value, I think it is only possible with even values, because we can’t have a - 0.15 pitch for example.

So for each 2bpm difference we change 0.3 pitch.

Hope it helps in some way. And sorry if this subject was already posted.

This is a very useful tip! Thanks.

Unfortunately, that’s only an approximation. It doesn’t work if your starting bpm is a lot different from 128, and it doesn’t work if the bpm difference is much bigger.

This is the kind of repeated calculation that would justify an online calculator … I wonder if somebody has done one already ?

EDIT: Here you go … 2nd calculator on the page works this out for you

And here’s the solution for the original question.
