The whole genre of Hip Hop has used this to adapt music into a new form

Not everyone works with live drummers. And a tool to either even the tempo
or create a tempo map of a piece would help re samplers extend on other
musical ideas.

If the piece is under a free license or public domain. I would say "great!"

Now, I am an accomplished drummer and don't create music that would require

they see fit. So, instead of criticism a simple I don't know of a tool that
does that or silence would do.
