Exactly! But try as I might I make changes but nothing happens. I have tried selecting the entire track in the editor but it doesn't seem to work. I did however download a software that did exactly what I wanted. It is called MixPad. Thanks for the response. I would still like to do it in Roxio if anyone knows how.

This is from the Help files.

 

Using the BPM Editor In some cases, it may not be possible for Music Disc Creator to determine the correct location of the beat within a particular song. In this case, you can manually adjust the BPM for a track using the BPM Editor.

 

To manually adjust the BPM for a track:

 

1 Select a track by right-clicking, then select Beats per Minute > Edit. The BPM Editor window appears. 2 Place a check mark in the Metronome while playing checkbox, then click the Play button to hear the track along with the metronome. 3 Follow the instructions on the BPM Editor window to adjust the location and value of the BPM for the track, until the metronome is synchronized with the beats of the music. 4 Click Done when you’re finished. The selected tracks will now display the new BPM setting in the track list window.

 

If this isn't what you're looking for try doing a search of the Help files.

I think that in Sound editor, that just sets the BPM you want for the mix (or single track if only one).

 

Clicking on help in the options window gives:

 

Beats per minute: Enter the number of beats per minute that you want to have in your mix. Sound Editor supports the maximum of 240 beats per minute.

Snap to beat: When this option is selected, and you move sound clips in the Mix Editor, they will snap to the nearest beat, depending on how many beats per minute you have defined.

 

The BPM editor that tbrewst refers to is in Music Disc Creator, not Sound editor.

 

Maybe that is what you want? If so, try Music disc creator instead of sound editor.

Either way, I don't believe it is intended to actually change the music. All you're doing is tagging the track with the BPM for use with the mix, or in a future mix, so if it is looking for a track with a particular BPM, it can find it to add to the mix and synchronize the tracks.

 

If you want to actually change the duration or speed of the track, you'll need to use the "FX" options in Sound Editor.

Thanks, Jean. I didn't get a chance to come back to let the OP know that what Terry found, in the Help menus, wasn't for Sound Editor. I am glad that you did.

Although the page shows up when you click Sound Editor Help Center in Sound Editor, the page heading displayed from index/beats per minute says Music Disc Creator :-). I suspect the index is for the whole of EMC 2009, not just Sound Editor.

 

You are correct. Just another thing gone south, since Sonic took over. Help files, for the different programs, bring up help for all programs.

 

That makes no sense to me.
