I'm fairly new to this (just discovered the program yesterday and downloaded and tweaked the lite version this morning!)

But am wondering if I need to sync my samples (sound files) in the precise bpm of the current project I'm working on. Does AM do this automatically? I mean, adjust the BPM of the soundfile according to the current metronome?

Any ideas?

If you've made a sample that is 1 bar long, and play it in AudioMulch using the LoopPlayer contraption, the sample will be sync'd to the AudioMulch BPM (so one bar of AudioMulch time = one play of your sample). This is done automatically by AudioMulch

[b][i]However[/i][/b], AudioMulch does not 'pitch correct' loops that are played in LoopPlayer - if you have, for example, a 1-bar guitar sample that was recorded at 70bpm, and your audiomulch document BPM is 80bpm, your guitar sample will have a higher pitch when played in LoopPlayer.

So in short, yes, you need to recorded/render your samples to the BPM that you'll be playing them in AudioMulch (unless you're not bothered about pitch stretching artefacts).

Hope that is of some help to you.

...and when it has the option to play all at project BPM, ala Ableton, we will be grinning from ear to asshole!

[ This is something i so wish to see in the future. Heres hoping!!! ]
