Pitch Shift

GOALS:

  • Fix out of tune tracks that can’t be re-recorded correctly.
  • Fit bits of a crowded mix together with the help of a pitch-based spreader, thickener, or layering effect.
  • Feature tracks with obvious new pitch qualities, composing new musical parts, and imparting a new shape to any melody or chord sequence.

GEAR:

  • Extraordinary signal processing sophistication is accompanied by complex, and rarely intuitive user interfaces.
  • Musical use of pitch correction tools requires mastery of the parameters and practice with the processor.
  • Listen carefully. Pitch perfection is not always the best answer. Learn to expect unexpected artifacts.
