Apply both musical and “low-fi”
Cubase offers many ways to fit tempo or
follow tempo changes, such as warping,
musical time, and hit points. However,
this method uses the Time Stretch DSP
function to allow for a wider choice of
algorithms, and applies the process rather
than performing realtime processing.
Step 1 Set the
locators for the
target clip length.
Step 2 Click the clip
to select it, then go
to Audio > Process >
Step 3 In the Time Stretch dialog box, click on Use Locators.
Step 4 Select a stretching algorithm.
Step 5 Click Preview to hear how the algorithm affects the sound.
After finding the ideal algorithm, click on Process.
Step 4: The élastique Pro “Tape”
algorithm changes pitch as well
as time, so setting the locators to
extremes can provide “slowed-
down” or “sped up” tape effects.
Step 4: The Help button in the
lower left describes characteristics
of the various algorithms.
Step 5: To audition algorithms,
after previewing an algorithm, click
Stop, select another algorithm,
click Preview, audition it, etc.
