    it depends on the bpm of the tune mate. the pitch control varies the percentage increase on the original bpm of the tune.

    so putting a 175 tune @ +3% will give you roughly 180.5
    whereas a 170 tune @ +3% will give you roughly 175.1

    hope that makes sense....

    i guess given what i said above u could assume that +3 will add roughly 5bpm to the original...

    yeah m8 so theres no rule of thumb as it varies depending on what bpm the original tune is? so at 3% a 174bpm tune will have a different increase to a 183bpm tune yeah
    ?

    Its percentage-wise so it will always be a percentage increase instead of just a straight speed.
