Default The awesome "sleeper" feature of v5.984

+ Actions: add action to set media item playrate from user-supplied source media tempo

It shows up as this Action:

Item properties: Set item rate from user-supplied source media tempo/bpm...

...which allows you to enter a bpm, and it will conform the selection to that BPM. I've only been using Reaper 5 months, but have wanted this from the get-go. If you work with a lot of tempo-sensitive assets, this is killer!

That's the main one that caught my attention as well. I don't think it's enough to make a video about it but yeah, great addition.

Even one step further would be: get the source tempo from the wave file and apply it.

EDIT: ah there is: Script: me2beats_Match selected items tempo to project tempo.lua

EDIT2: the script above will unfortunately only measure the length and adjust the playrate accordingly.

Is this in effect the same as the 'tempo match' feature of Reaper's media explorer (before the item is dropped into the project).

I assume it is, but this allows you to make the tempo match after the item is already in the project or if you're drag+dropping from outside of Reaper?

Hi,
for that I only use the "alt"+ drag right edge of item, which streches it. With snap enabled this is ultra fast.

Yup, great way to look at it! Only difference is you're explicitly giving it the BPM, as opposed to Media Explorer trying to divine it for you.

Aha! If you mean those three pertaining to "Media" - that's great! [trying to respect the request to not talk about pre's, outside the pre forum
