Hi and welcome,

You can change it the same way, as imported WAV file.

Import the file to the project. In the Pool (or in the Info Line of the Project window), enable Musical Mode. Change the tempo of the project. The tempo of the audio will follow.

Please, read about the Musical Mode here on the forum.

Hello,
When I measure the tempo of a song by using Cubase it gives a different result when I use an online tool !
Check out https://www.getsongbpm.com as they can help you check the beats per mintue of any track in the world. I sometimes use their Chrome extension to get the BPm from any stream source using the detector.
