    I'm looking for software which allows you to set the bpm of an mp3 then export it at high quality

    E.g ...

    You load in any mp3 ... Say "Quest" by Andy C and Shimon which originally plays at 164bpm

    You then say, I want this tune at 174bpm in tempo, whilst adjusting pitch accordingly

    The software does it

    Then lets you export it at either wav or 320kbps quality

    I've tried Audacity, which is fine for most things, but in terms of adjusting "speed", it only allows you to set a percentage to adjust the speed of the tune by, rather than you being able to enter a set bpm

    Hoping someone can help, cheers

    Ive got a Mac so i use Sound Studio

    record it then export as a wav like SC said

    then speed it up with the tempo adjust but keep the pitch the same

    Yeah I see what ya sayin mate

    I've just tried with Ableton and its close to what I want, but the problem with the program is that to set a tune to a certain bpm it slightly warps it at certain points to keep it in check, which isn't really what I want as it would be no good for mixing

    Can't have mixes going in and out at their own free will bcoz the track doesn't run straight through at a set bpm!

    What I'm really looking for is a program which can work out the exact percentage difference between two set bpms and then adjust the file accordingly

    I guess I could get the old calculator out but has anyone got any better suggestions? lol

    I need the tempo and pitch adjusted as if the tune had just been pitched up on a deck

    Would end up losing quality though

    Im trying the calculator way now, it should actually work lol

    174 - 164 = 10

    10 / 164 = 0.060975 .....

    x 100 = 6.0975

    Which means if you increase the speed percentage by this much

    It should be pretty accurate to 174 bpm

    Although not perfect :confused:

    So if I tell the program that Atlantis plays at exactly 155bpm

    And I want it adjusted in both tempo and pitch to play at exactly 174bpm

    It'l do all the rest for me?

    what you do:

    i recorded my copy of Apollo Two - Atlantis

    use the tempo and pitch adjust option on the tool bar. speed it up to the speed i wanted, then burnt it onto CD
