SMPTE LOCK and Flex Pitch issues

    I had a song that was recorded at 100 BPM which was imported into Logic at its default 120. In order to add MIDI drums and line everything up at the corrent speed, I performed the SMPTE lock procedure, slowed the time down to 100 BPM and unlocked SMPTE. Everything fine, locked the midi drums to this new speed and job done...until....I try to retune some vocals...using Flex Pitch...and the vocals automatically slow down and become out of time with the song. Thank goodness for 'undo'.

    How can I use Flex Pitch without this happening?

    Not sure why that's happening, but the first workaround I would try would be to open a New song and set the tempo to 100, then Import everything from your other song file. I'm assuming that some invisible tempo file is mistakenly telling your vocal track that it's already been changed from 120, and maybe importing it into a new session file will make it 'forget'...or maybe it won't work, but it's worth a try!
