Hello, Maybe this is a beginner question, so feel free to move it if so, mods.
I’m looking for a way to pitch shift my samples without changing the tempo, basically, for drum loops and vocal samples.
I think i might’ve done this accidently once, but I can’t figure out how to do it again, so I’ve no idea if it’s possible in renoise.
If it is possible, can anyone tell me how?
If not, does anyone have any suggestions for a free mac vst shifter?
Thanks in advance guys,
or you can play that sample at a different pitch and use the 09xx offset command
Enter the note a lot of times and define where in the sample each note should start with 09xx
you can kindof emulate it having a different pitch but the same tempo this way (but not quite)
timestretch your original sample, then play the stretched sample at your original sample pitch + percentage of stretch converted in pitch. You’ll have a sample at it’s original tempo but with higher or lower pitch.
(ie: take an original sound playing at A-4 (440hz), timestretch it at 200% with akaizer, so your stretched sample will be twice as long, load this in renoise, play it at A-5 (880hz) and voila, sample is 1 octave higher for same length.)
Not perfect, but can give interesting sound results.
I achieve way better result with this manual pitchshifting method than the automatic plugins one (personal taste though).
Unfortunately it isn’t detected by Renoise at all, is it a PPC plugin or so? (I’m on Intel)
The pitch shift function in Renoise hasn’t the desirable effect, for example when I have a nice synced sample, and i want to pitch shift it, it sort of works but uses 1 or 2 bars to shift it. What i would want is that it’s shifted immediately…
Renoise should just have a nice (read: easy to use, nice gui to generate those hex val’s) and good working pitch changer.
The au pitch shifter included with OSX is very resource heavy, though very nice.
I hooked an LFO meta-device to it running on a quad core and it ran very nice and clean on the breakbeats I was using.
Only when I started thinking about changing a bunch of parameters in it with the meta-device did it begin to show any weakness.
Still sounded good but in a different way.
