    Hey yall,

    Does anyone know of a plugin, preferably free, that allows me to do this! I could have sworn I was able to do this once but I can't find a pitch shifter or nothing to use as an insert! Its on an audio track btw, otherwise I would just automate the Instruments Osc Pitch !

    Cheers :)

    Hey man, found this: http://bitterspring.net/pitchshifter/ no idea how good it works but I like the idea behind it! I would suggest for you to use Apple AUPitch but I know you are part of the Windows/Cubase fam. Dunno what you are working with, but you could put your audio into a sampler and adjust pitch there too

    Your using Cubase right?

    Double click your audio sample and hit vari audio (i think it's var audio) - click pitch and warp, you can then drag the notes about from there.

    on second thoughts -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fkvGsyyrqNY

    Oh wow that looks sick man, thanks for sharing :) Sadly though I am one version behind! Using Cubase 4.

    That feature would actually be so perfect for some of the stuff I have wanted to do with vocals before too, could get some dope Burial style stuff I reckon :p

    alternitivly, right click your audio then -> Process -> Pitch shift

    you might wanna fiddle with some of the settings to ensure it does a smooth shift.

    Oh man, I actually do really want to upgrade now. Like, really bad. Just for VariAudio! I watched a few more vids and it is a killer tool!

    I can't upgrade though, I have to sort out cash for my car, learning to drive :) Plus, when I do get spare cash to spend on music production I think my priority now has to be spending the cash on a new machine. My laptop can't handle all the different EQs, Compressors, etc. running when I mixdown and it is actually unbearable to do a mixdown :( I often find myself bouncing down the track, making notes, opening up the tune, make guessed adjustments then bounce down again as the tune will simply not play smoothly! :( It's very painful but of course worth it :)

    But yeah, cheers for the comments, I'm gunna test out the pitch shifter T:M posted tomorrow, sure that'll do the trick :) But I now want 5 or 6 so bad! o_O
