That sounds right to me, chop sample into a loop - as in a regular number of beats or bars, then adjust pitch of that loop to get the same bpm as your sequence, then chop that. All will be at the same pitch/tempo as that from which you chopped.
You could also use time stretch to adjust a loop to your required bpm.
