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
