Ok guys, been ripping alot of my old/classic vinyl to hq wav files from my mixer(djm 350). Thing is some of the tracks are pretty slow, bpm??

How can I make all my rips to 150bpm?? Is it easy to do?? Thanks people

a) determine the original bpm (eg 144)
b) divide the original bpm by the target bpm (eg 150/144 = 1.041666666)
c) the quotient you get is a percentage of how much you have to speed your track up (150bpm are 104,1666666% of 144bpm)
d) tell audacity or soundbooth or whatever you're using to speed your track up to 104,166666666%
d2) you can also "shorten" the track (fast tracks are shorter :P) but then you have to timestrech the track by 95,833333333% (100%-4,16666666%)

but not sure if i'm right, better doublecheck if it worked by comparing it with a "real" 150bpm track in fl or logic or whatever

but anyways: why would you do that? xD

Thanks for replying and I know how to work it now and the reason is some of my older vinyl are pretty slow in bpm and don't even reach 154! Now it's fine :) x

You really think tracks produced at 138-142 bpm sounds good at +10-11% pitch? :P

I understand what your saying there dude but for example 'Overdrive - listen to that fat Bass' sounds so much better at 156bpm imo hehe :p

IMO the method to pitch up the tracks in Audacity and co. isnt good.
main problem is that the kicks especially will have sometimes a "umpf". i made this experience.

Its similar to the pitch up on a CDJ with master-tempo. easy to hear, somethig went wrong with the kicks.

record the tracks regulary and pitch up them later with the CDJ - without master tempo - :)

Haha well I still think too much of the sub frequency picture is handicapped with that much pitch :P But if you like it then so be it ;)
