Hey folks!

I'm moving from Cakewalk to S1.5   I dragged files over, all start at 1. All the tracks I Imported into cakewalk originally lined up, the ones I recorded live didn't.... even though they all start at 1. It's like 5 bars were added to all the drum tracks! The tempos match, there's no editing on the drum tracks etc. I have a bunch of songs that need to be moved over and I'm wondering if there's something that I'm missing....

A stem is just a WAV file.  Studio One doesn't know/care if it was exported from Cakewalk, Pro Tools or another Studio One project.

Do you have time stretching enabled on those drum tracks by any chance?

No, time stretching wasn't enabled. The weird thing is that I was able to import the drums but I used a different cakewalk session that had the same drum tracks. I have no idea why it worked or why it didn't. The rest of the songs I setup went just fine. While this program is different, I am getting used to it and taking advantage of some of the features......
