    if you're lookin 2 sample somethin, u can't really do it. it'll let u increase the tempo, but not exactly to the tempo u want...if you're lookin 2 do this, you want Acid.

    you can't just change a tempo without changing the pitch in sound forge. you can speed something up, but the pitch and the tempo will change. its called "pitch shift" and I think its under "tools" in sound forge.

    to change the tempo of something without changing the pitch, you can do it a number of ways. I think in sound forge 6 theres a tool called "time stretch" where you either shorten the length of the audio file, thus making it faster but not changing the pitch, or lengthen it, which will make it longer. the problem is that it effects sound quality. Acid has a similar option which is "beatmapping" which allows you to determine the tempo of an audio file, and then change it, but again it hurts the sound quality. for a lack of a more technical term, it sounds stretched basically lol. it especially affects bass and lower frequencies because those wavelengths are longer.

    yes there is

    there is an option in SF to change the tempo without changing the pitch. you need to highlight the section you want to change then select Time Stretch(i use differant programs so i need to double check that). what ever area you choose will be equal to 100%. if you wanna speed it up, stretch the wave by increasing the percentage (ex 105%). and visa versa. shrink the size of the wave by dcreasing the percent (ex 95%) will speed it up. no pitch change involved.

    yeah. keep in mind the more drastic the change the more messed up the wave will sound. but minor changes of 5% are fine.
