Hello everyone, Wanted to see if anyone knew how to transpose a WAV file from Loop Community in Logic Pro 9. We are new to using loops in our worship and wanted to transpose some loops for different leads. If anybody out there knows of a way I would appreciate any advice or tips. thanks, Eric M

Hey Eric, You will want to use the destructive audio utility, "Time and Pitch Machine." I would first make a copy of the file you want to transpose. Then select the file and click Factory > Time and Pitch Machine. Select Free mode, since you want to adjust pitch independently of time. You can select any algorithm (Complex might be best for a full loop track). You can then adjust the pitch (a value of 100 is a half-step). Since this is a destructive audio utility, you will always want a backup. Let me know if you have any problems. Kyle

Thank for the great information Kyle. We will try that this weekend and I will let you know if it works out for us. Eric M
