    I was wondering if anyone knows of a Windows OS VST that is able to automatically fit a sample to a specified tempo and retain the original key? In other words, Im looking for a VST capable of doing exactly what Ableton does to fit samples to a track on the beat.

    almost the same with studio one.
    drag from files in a session edit tempo on the file clip export back into your library
    set channel stretch mode to "time stretch" it should now follow you BPM

    I'm aware of those features and appreciate your input but I need a vst or stand alone appp. I want to be able to do it outside the DAW.

    Every single stand alone sampler/sequencer available out there : Geist 1 & 2, MPC 2 (software), Machine....Etc. They also work in vst and the use of the sequencers is optional, you can just stick to their sampling features and play them in your daw sequencer/piano roll.

    Thanks for your suggestion. Have you done it with Geist before? If you have, do you mind explaining how you go about it?:like:

    For what you wanna achieve in Geist 2 it should go like this : in the sample editor tab, "TS" section (time stretch), turn "active" on and then turn "track" on (TS tracks BPM). I think. I don't use that function much in Geist, but you'll find the right settings in no time.

    Copy of the manual regarding that part :

    "
    Timestretch controls
    The process of time-stretching allows the pitch of a sample to be changed without affecting its
    length and vice-versa..
    This is useful for working with full loops on a single pad, and also for general-purpose creative
    sound design.
    It is important to remember that timestretching almost always results in some artifacts, as it is a
    very complex digital process which 'bends physics' to some extent. Toggling the
    Fast
    mode button
    can minimize the artifacts, although these types of artifacts can often be desirable when used in a
    creative context.
    Timestretch power
    This button activates or deactivates the timestretch function.
    When the timestretch function is active, any changes to the pitch of the
    sample – using the Tune and Fine controls, pitch graphs and engine/Master
    pitch controls elsewhere in Geist2 – result in the length of the sample staying
    the same.
    Amount
    This control adjusts the timestretch amount between a range of 10% to
    400% of the original length. At the centre position (0%), the sample is played
    back at its original speed.
    Fast
    By default, the Geist2 timestretch algorithm is optimized for drum sounds and other sounds with
    hard, fast transients. Activating the
    Fast
    mode button enables a less CPU-heavy algorithm instead
    which is designed for melodic material like synths or vocals. It's always worth experimenting with
    both the default and Fast modes, as one may work better than the other for any particular
    material.
    Track
    When the
    Track
    button is activated, the amount of timestretch is scaled accordingly when the
    Geist2 tempo is changed

    @Talmi Thank you for taking your time and explaining it. How do I tag an answer as the Best Answer. You have provided me with what I was looking for.

    No problem, happy it worked.
    You have a "best answer" button under every posts (next to "quote") in the threads you create.
    Cheers. :wink:
