Well, I’ve had a nice holiday and a break from Renoise and now I’m back I thought I’d push a new tool out for general testing.
The following is information about the Akaizer tool and version 0.9 is attached to this forum post. Please test on all platforms (Windows/Linux/Mac) to identify any errors before the tool goes live on the main tools page.
The Akaizer tool for Renoise integrates the AKAIZER freeware cyclic timestretch and pitch shift tool into the Renoise sample editor.
From the Akaizer website:
Please visit the Akaizer website for more details about the application.
The Renoise tool is a simple wrapper for Akaizer which is accessed from the Process menu of the sample editor.
Upon execution the tool will present a GUI dialog in which the user can specify all the Akaizer parameters (time stretch percentage (25% to 2000%, cycle size (20 to 2000) and pitch shift (-24 to +24 semitones).
Upon confirmation, the tool will then process the selected sample and reimport it.
This tool makes a nice compliment to the rubberband timestretch and pitch shift tool and gives a more ‘classic’ stretch sound.
Akaizer executables for Windows, Linux (32bit) and Mac are incorporated into the tool download.
I would like to express a large thank you to Ben from the Akaizer project who compiled the command line versions for all platforms for integration into this tool and for being open to the idea of Renoise integration.
Thus, if you use Akaizer in your projects to good effect please pass on any gratitude to Ben rather than myself as I have overall contributed little to this tool.
