Grain pitch shift

In my opinion, renoise is the best possible software to act as an improvement to the original MPC1000 internal software for live performances on drumpads but there are a few key features missing. One of these is the “sixteen levels” feature of the MPC1000 which was a really nice smooth grain pitchshift which allowed the user to shift up sixteen semitones from the original pitch without changing the speed of the sample.

In renoise I can shift the pitch up or down as many semitones as I want by increasing / decreasing the speed at which the sample is played back, which is fine for short looped samples but doesnt work well for longer samples.

I know there is probably a great third party grain pitch shifter vst but it would be nice to have grain pitch shift included in renoise and controllable by pattern effect commands or in automation lanes.
