  1. Oh, excuse me, I am slow on the uptake! 😄 I just thought because you did not mention something about the tempo change, you meant a simple pitch change! My misunderstanding! I like it! This describes in detail and in a better way what I tried to explain! I know exactly what this knob did on my Tascam 8-track tape recorder! I wanted to turn the attention in this thread exactly to the meaning of the last 2 sentences of the SOS extract! This is also my experience and that's the reason why I prefer something like the resampling in Samplitude/Audacity for recording something in another pitch/tempo.
  2. Sorry chuckebaby, I get your joke, but your pitch knob is not the thing we need as this is not the same as varispeed!
  3. I had already read the 7th post, but just to prevent that I do misunderstand something I read it again and tried it in CbB. Yes, you can do it like that, but it is a simple pitch shift with all the usual artifacts (you can do the same thing with your premix and the menu 'Process > Transpose ...', to me that seems easier!). But real varispeed means that you change the tempo with affecting the pitch in a natural way, it is not the same like changing the pitch with an algorithm (like it is surely behind the Loop Construction view)! Well, this is my last try to explain! Sorry, that I am so insistent! 😉
  4. Maybe in certain cases you can (mis)use it for this application, but if you want to record a vocal track in another speed and go back to the original speed (as requested by the OP), then I do not see the usage of Loop Construction as a solution! 😉 And secondly Loop Construction does not preserve the natural speed - pitch relation as with real varyspeed, i.e. without artifacts! Try the "Change Speed ..." function in Audacity, then you see what I mean! 😄
  5. I did not say that it does not work in general with vocals and so on, my statements only refer to polyphonic detection and there it depends on the simplicity of a sound whether it works (like piano). If you use it for example on a synthesizer track, then you may get too many voices, some voices do not continue, overtones are used as voices and so on, i.e. it would need endless manual work in the detection window to get it right, before you could begin to change!! And I believe there are many out there who can confirm this! 😉 I use Melodyne a lot, but mostly for single voice (melodic) stuff like single voice vocal and bass guitar tracks! But for that you do not have to upgrade to Editor from Assistant!
  6. I did this upgrade a long time ago. Although they say it can detect polyphonic material please just be prepared that for many stuff it doesn't work! Nevertheless I can remember a positive case when a keyboarder reached 2 keys instead of one and I could remove the faulty one. My impression is that polyphonic material only works for very clean material like piano (that was the positive case above), picked accoustic guitar and such stuff, forget about synthesizer, vocals and the like! 😖
  7. I'm still using the 2.n.n versions of my guitars/bass! First I don't like that the whole plugin interface has been bloated with a lot of functions that I newer use (although I would like to use the amp page 😄) and there's no way to get rid of it (you have always to check if those cheap stomps are off)! Second when I tried to download version 3 I was really shocked about the sample library sizes, they have even exceeded the 4GB limit, that means I cannot copy the installers with an USB medium to my offline computer and also on my internet connection it is a pain to download such monsters!!! 😠 I was very satisfied with the older samples, saw no need to have disk fillers!
  8. But it would still be possible to be implemented, see the Tascam 2488neo, it has it and it is also just an interface with a DAW software! And also in other DAWs and even in Audacity you can find a function like this (change speed affecting also the pitch without artifacts).
  9. There is a lot of free and affordable stuff on the internet available that is quite good. You have to download and install them (either using their installers or extracting their dll's into the VST directory of your choice that has to be defined in CbB's preferences). By the way IMO the instruments and FX plugins coming with DAWs are 1) often also not so great and 2) not the ones that you like. So many people using DAWs buy a lot of additional instruments and FX plugins anyway! 😄
  10. I have used Dominator and HellBeast a little bit, and I like them (also their interface) although I am more a vintage guitar player! Once when I had tested and compared overdrive and distortion stomps (real boxes and plugin stuff), I was positively surprised of the stomps included in Dominator, one of the best overdrives (everything from gentle warmth up till real distortion is usable). But some months ago I bought a Boss Katana 50 for recording guitar (and even bass), IMO the real stuff sounds better and is easier to set up. 😉 But this does not mean that I will never use my plugins again! 😄
  11. I bought them some years ago when they were on sale. IMO they sound fantastic if you finetune the velocity and duration for each note, but that requires a lot of patience! I used them for some solo duos, but with background accompaniment.
  12. It is exactly this "shell beast" that stopped me buying and using Waves plugins. This uncommon idea is the source of a lot of problems (e.g. scanning performance, version compatibility of single plugins, Daw compatibility ...). It is also the reason why I am not interested in even FREE Waves plugins! 😋
  13. @cclarry And I just thought I had outlived BF! But I cannot pass this one! Thanks, Larry!

    I think drum sound is a matter of taste. Everybody has his own vision how it should sound. So I have to curb the euphoria of AD2 (even if it is also my #2), IMHO their kicks sound awful, much too roomy. With all of their endless processing possibilities I don't get rid of it, seems it is attached to the base samples. It's a pity, because I like the rest of AD2 (okay, the snares could also sound better!).
  15. Me too! But as far as I can see the ticks depend on the interleave setting (stereo/mono). It looks as if 2 ticks show a stereo and one tick shows a mono signal path. Depending on the track mono/stereo setting CA-2A shows 1 or 2 ticks here.
