Stretching sounds

Postby mario » Thu Jan 17, 2013 5:49 am


I saw this video about the time wharp markers in ProTools:

Does MixCraft have similar functionality that allows me to stretch single tones or selected regions in a song?

thanks for your help,

No, Mixcraft does not have a warp marker feature, but we've entertained the thought several times. We'll just have to see what Mixcraft 7 brings.

In current versions of Mixcraft, we have something we call FlexAudio. Hold down the Ctrl key and position the mouse cursor over the end of an audio clip until it turns into hands. You can then stretch or shrink the sound. Instant time-stretching!

Thank you. FlexAudio is a really nice feature. I think, splitting the song and re-combining the parts after using FlexAudio can be an alternative if this can be rolled back after saving and closing the file.

What I am trying to achieve: I play pieces writtten for two classical solo guitars. When I record the first guitar and then add the second guitar, I often have chords or single tones that need to be shifted a little bit to the left/right to match the first track. I am searching for a non-destructive way to achieve this. A "good" recording takes some time and I would not like to destroy the orginial recording with multiple split/recombine.
