I have audio track A which is 126 BPM

and audio track B at a BPM that I am not sure of.

I want both tracks to be in sync at 112 bpm.  I can get the track that is 126 BPM to sync with the metronome at 112 BPM, however, the audio track for which I do not know the BPM, I have spent 3 days trying to make it sync up and it just wont. I have tried setting the track to timestretch and then guestimating the bpm to see if I could get it that way but no matter which bpm I set the original audio to, it is not quite syncing. I have googled this and searched these boards but I was not able to find a question where this was already answered.  There has to be a way to do this that I do not know about. I am new to studio one, so please bear with me.

This is what I would do: Find the approximate the bpm of the second track e.g by tap tempo. Set the song to that tempo. Put bend markers where the bars, or smaller subdivisions, are in the track. Pull these to the match the bar positions, or smaller subdivisions, on the timeline. Now bounce the track. It should now follow any tempo changes.
