[ddots-l] Re: changing pitch on an audio track

Yup, AudioSnap is very cool indeed.  Just been recording a cover for our
duo.  Unfortunately I had set the tempo to 159BPM however, I decided
afterwards that I wanted the track to run at 163BPM as the track didn't
sound fast enough.  Difficult cover to do too.  It is the Police Track
"Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic." Glad I have Superior 2 as you really
do need a snare that cracks off in order to try and get something close to
Stuart Copland's drum sound.  Then, there's the drum programming aspect of
it.  ARG!   Not easy!  Still, I like a challenge and it's nice to be making
music again and not programming up access for some plug-in.  I had already
recorded the bass guitar track and couldn't be bothered to retrack it.  So,
I Audiosnapped it at 159BPM then, sped up the project.  You would struggle
to hear that the bass has been audiosnapped.  Fortunately my timing was nice
and tight so, it was just a case of setting the bass track to follow the
project tempo.  2 second job and highly affective.

Sound Forge's algorithms for time and pitch stretch are ancient when
compared to the MPEX and Radius algorithms in Sonar. In Sonar, you can
stretch or compress by over 50% without hearing hardly any artifacts. The
pitch change can transpose entire segments of music by many semitones while
preserving the formant, so the music doesn't sound like its just a sped up
tape. If you're working with a solo instrument or voice, you can stretch
time and shift pitch even further with great results.

For a destructive pitch change, you can actually use the transpose command
in the process menu on an audio track, just like you would with MIDI.

Time stretching is best done by using audiosnap. Once you convert a basic
audio clip in to an audiosnap clip, you can stretch the clip to a certain
length, stretch the clip so that it finishes at a specific time in your
project, cause it to automatically expand and collapse as you change the
tempo of your project, and more. All of those changes are performed in real
time, and are non-destructive, so you can edit the length and other settings
as many times as you need to to make sure all is well before you export your
project. Have a look at the CT tutorial. There is an entire section devoted
to audiosnap.

I have used the pitch change in soundforge and it seems to work okay,
although you can definitely hear a change. If I were to use this feature in
Sonar, I assume I would use it after creating the audio track and before
exporting it to a waive. Is this correct? By the way, I'm using sonar 6
producer.

        Hi there, Luis and omar.
        I must tell you, I love that feature in sonar and I find it very
good my self.
        I did some pitching for a client one night or better said, not a
client, just a good friend of mine cause she wanted to sing some songs that
was a little bit too high for her.
        so, I tested that function of the time stretch/pitch shifter in
sonar, and it worked out really really good. and the vocals she sang was
perfect for that song.
        Regards,
        Jörgen Hansson!

                i think 3 semitones up and down is acceptable. depends on
the quality you need , if it is for a demo it's fine.
                it takes some time for processing so you can select a small
fragment and process as a test and once you find the right setting you can
process the whole song.

                        I've never used it before. Would I be able to change
it to just about any scale I needed to?

                                the time pitch stretch that comes with sonar
works very good.

                                        Hello,
                                         
                                        I may need to change the pitch/scale
on an mp3 instrumental for a client to fit their vocal range. Do I have more
options to achieve this in sonar or soundforge?
