2. Pitch Shifter
1 Pitch Shifter uses granular processing to apply up to two octaves of pitch shift in either direction. Shift is dialled in by dragging up and down on the semitones and cents readouts, while the Mix control again balances the dry and wet signals, making it easy to create twopart harmonies. 2 Pitch Shifter’s Correlate mode is an advanced algorithm that works well on vocals and other harmonically straightforward parts, yielding a more transparent sound than you get without it. Turning it off, however, gives access to the Jitter control, which randomises the pitch for cool unison-style effects. 3 The Grain Size control adjusts the length of the slices generated by the granular engine, radically affecting the quality of the sound. In Correlate mode, you’ll probably want to keep this as low as possible. With Correlate off, Grain Size is very source-dependent, so experimentation is key.
