Power App – Steinberg Cubase

By Craig Anderton | December 6, 2012

Apply both musical and “low-fi” time-stretching.

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 > Time Stretch.


 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.

Step 6 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.
