PITCH SHIFTER

Overview

Harmonic shifting

Are you out of tune? Do you want to be? Either way, Pitch Shifter uses grain delay to bring the pitch where you want it to be. Or at least somewhere else from where it already is.

The Pitch Shifter will adjust the pitch of the input signal up or down.

Parameters

Pitch display

How much to adjust the pitch, in semitones.

Jitter knob

How much randomness to add to the pitch. A high jitter setting can give a unison-like effect. This is only available when Correlate is off.

Grain Size knob

During processing the pitch shifter chops up the audio into small snippets called grains. This setting adjusts the length of the grains, which can influence the sound.

Mix knob

The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.

Correlate

Enables a more advanced algorithm resulting in a more clear effect for many inputs. Be careful though as it might have problems with complex pads and textures.
