PT9- How to change session tempo and keep audio tracks synced with instrument tracks?

Is there an easy way to change the tempo of an entire session in Pro Tools that would also "stretch" the length of all the audio tracks in order to keep them synced with the MIDI instruments?

I haven't had to do something like this in Pro Tools before.

If anyone could help guide me, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

You just have to enable Elastic Audio on all audio tracks and also switch them on Ticks reference and not Samples...

You'll find both things in the edit window, on your tracks under "dyn" and automation status...

once you enabled elastic audio PT will "analyze" the audio and then if you change the tempo audio will be automatically stretched..
pay attention when you have lot of tracks, can make your pc explode hohoho

Also you have to check if the Conductor mode thing is on or off on the Transport

Thanks so much! That worked great! Is there a shortcut or key command to set every track in a session to ticks instead of having to do it manually?

You can do that by pressing ALT and then click and change to ticks on a single tracks
(in PT, ALT applies every action to ALL tracks, as well as ALT + SHIFT does to the ones you selected)
