Hello,

Ive been asking myself lately what is the proper way of time stretching in Renoise and maybe other trackers.

And lets leave rubberband tool out of this :-).

 

I love the sound of synced, slowed melodic loops but because i cant control the tonal changes i can end with dissonant loop (is it right?) and so it can be hard to create a good sounding companion bass on chromatic scale.
By moving the BPM the tone / key changes so it is even harder...

In Reaper for example, i take loop, stretch it and then pitch it down by selectable amount of semitones so it will stay on the key. And then i can change tempo of the song and the tone of the sample wont change.

 

I ve got feeling that there is a different way how to think about downpitching / stretching in trackers and sync is redudant.
Some basic oldskul technique? 
Can somebody give me the idea? Thanks

Actually the #Rubberband Timestretch/pitchshifting combined with the technic you described and want to use, is pretty perfect.

 

Why do you want to dismiss the easiest solution here?

I don't always... but the rubberband is destructive

So when you change your tempo you have to apply rubber band again.

 

But i would love to know if there another technique that is more consistent with tempo changes (sometimes i make track on 130bpm and then change it to 90bpm).
