(It may detect it as 160 BPM (double of 80), as it is closer to the Set's BPM.)


Then just click the "*2" button. It will play half-speed.

I just would like to add that appallingly often Live is just plain off. The only completely reliable way of not having to change the clip bpm, that I've found anyway, is to change the bpm of the set to the same as the clip (if the bpm is known at that point) when dropping that in, then changing back to whatever I was using. Interestingly this is never an issue when converting an audio clip to MIDI. Live gets most timing and tempo nuances quite correctly.
