    I just started using Acid Xpress a few days ago. I'm trying to record a song. I've loaded a backing track and I'm improvising over that, which of course adds a second track to the song. This is really weird, and I've looked around for a simple answer, but my guitar track is being raised a half step in the recording. When I'm playing it sounds natural (the backing track is in A minor and I'm playing an A pentatonic scale). But when I stop recording and listen to it, my guitar track has been raised a half step, which of course sounds awful. In the track properties, it is not being stretched.

    (I'm using a Line 6 GuitarPort)

    Does anyone have some insight on this?

    Thank you!

    check the sample rate? someting similar happended to me once i messed the asio interface, yet i did notice some stretching so i figured out it must have been the ssmple rate. The stretching is minuscule, but is there and not reported by the DAW

    check the track properties on the bottom of the window: there's a pull down menu where you can choose wether if the sample is played as a loop or beatmapped or as a one shot ...
    acid stretches loops automatically to the tempo of the project!!!

    hope that helps!!

    peace, rei

    Ah ha!

    The track was set as "beatmapped" and that was the problem. By changing it to "one shot", the half step stretch was removed.

    Thanks!!
