How to turn off warp in Ableton?

To disable warping on a specific clip, click the desired clip, you should then see the waveform of the audio clip appear and the left of the waveform is the clip parameters, click the button labeled “Warp” to disable warping for that clip.

By default Ableton Live will want to warp most audio unless it is a short sample with 1 transient peak. You can disable this functionality by going to Live’s Preferences, the Record Warp Launch tab, and turn off “Auto Warp Long Samples.” That way when you drag in a song to Ableton Live, that song will not automatically warp.
