Sampling 33 1/3 vinyl at 78 and pitching back down in Live

Post by ObscureMachines » Wed Jun 13, 2018 10:47 pm

Visited fam where my vinyl collection is located 4,300 miles away. Needed to sample vinyls quickly.

Sampled 33 1/3 records at 78. Trying to pitch back to original in Ableton via pitch warp. Have lots of clips. Is there a way to knock them all out at once with select all and changing the Seg. BPM maybe?

At a guess... I'd say make sure Auto-Warp Long Samples is switched off in Live's preferences. Then make a new project at 78BPM. Drag all your recorded files into Arrange View. Select all your clips, then turn Warp on for all of them. Now select Re-Pitch for the Warp Mode and change Live's project tempo to 33.333BPM. Now select each clip individually and hit Consolidate (Command-J / CTRL-J) to render your files at the new speed.

NB you've probably compromised your original recordings already though, unless you have a very high-end turntable and preamp setup and recorded at a sample rate of at least 96000 Hz. :(
