How to synch tempo loops with kit or global BPM tempo in Alesis Strike Multipad?

I'm having a hard time to figure out how can I use different BPM loops when setting the overall or kit BPM tempo. Every loop goes in its own tempo without following the kit or global tempo. So, what's the purpose to chose or set the BPM/tempo if none of the loops will be in synch? Is this just for the metronome?

Somebody may bring some light here, please?

This is very annoying to use factory loops together and yes I know that I can make my loops in tempo in my computer and import them in the module, but if you're giving +7000 sounds where there are at least +2000 loops... why you don't allow to be them in synch by following the tempo set on the Kit or globally?

It's like a misdirection when Alesis promotes this module as standalone piece without the need (indeed doesn't exist yet) of a PC based editor and then, for synching loops, user has to go into a PC to synch them all or store the same loops multiple times for different BPMs...

And by the way, why is not tempo a parameter of sound edit function neither?

I'm just realizing that I cannot even do anything useful in terms of edition on a factory loop even after copying it to user area, if I cannot change its tempo and not even export it for external manipulation, like exporting it to USB pendrive.

I know that I could export the audio, record it with my PC sound card, change it in PC and re-import it in the module, but, that's not the intention on a product that claims itself as standalone solution without PC/internet required!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Is there any way to export the loop recorded/edited to USB pen drive?.

I couldn't find any way to grab a loop that I want to modify, for instance, its tempo by exporting it to or by USB, update it and then re-imported in the module. (mainly due to the lack of tempo/BPM synch of loops inside the module).
