I recorded midi data in my DAW, FL Studio, with the incorrect tempo. How can I change tempo without affecting midi?

  • Changing the tempo will affect the midi, its playback speed the least. Commented Jul 17, 2018 at 5:01
  • You should be able to just change the tempo in the DAW and that should do it. Can you give us more details about the problem you are having and what you've tried so far? Commented Jul 17, 2018 at 13:15

Here's a really good demonstration of stretching Midi in FL:

  1. Go to piano roll.

(2.) Adjust the snap settings.

  1. Select all notes (or those you want to stretch) —> a little circle will appear on the right.

(4.) If needed, hold down the Alt key to bypass the "snap".

  1. Drag the little circle to the position you need it. The notes' position and length will be adjusted to your needs.
