I do it the other way around and it's why I'm still such an Acid Pro
fan. I handle tempo in Acid, putting together a drum track and other
things with loops. Acid handles tempo changes beautifully. It
stretches drum loops, allows me to change pitch on other things like
pads for which I don't own the right synths, etc. when I've got
something structured reasonably well I record it into Ardour,
maintaining everything on individual tracks. (Wish Ardour and Acid
cooperated better with mass export/import of sound files but that's
minor.) Once all that stuff is in Ardour I can record guitar, bass,
new drums if I wish, etc.

Works for me.
