I’ve searched the manual, and internet and can’t figure this out.
I make a perfect loop in looper, and want to export it or save it as a clip with the original BPM, so I can easily load it into future clip programs. I can only export it as a sample that reverts to 20bpm when loaded in a clip program. My workaround is to put the original BPM in the file name, and change it in clip program, but it seems like you should be able to export your loop as a clip automatically.
Am I missing something?

I’ve had the exact same issue, and as far as I can tell there is no way around it - it appears to be a design flaw or bug.

I suspect the MPC attempts to automatically detect tempo for any new sample, regardless of its origin. When it can’t correctly detect the tempo from an analysis of the audio, it sets it to 20. I think I’ve even had the same issue when using the resampler function - intuitively, it should set the tempo of the new sample to the tempo of the project or sequence, but it doesn’t. It attempts to auto detect it from the Audio and gets it wrong.

Unfortunately the only workaround I have found is to manually set the tempo of any new samples or clips to the project tempo. Hopefully this will
