Change tempo without changing pitch

Post by MuseSick » Sun Dec 01, 2019 6:01 pm

Hey all,

Trying to replicate a cool trick I saw on YouTube, but the guy used Protools, so not sure how to replicate on Cubase, or if it's possible.

I run Cubase Elements 8 64 bit on a PC. Therefore, I do not have the elastique dropdown option, which seems to be the easy way to do this.

What I want to do is slow down the whole song/project, sing some BG vocals, then speed the song back up so that the vocals stay in pitch and in time but have a higher timbre. I don't want to use some kind of plug in to do this that will result in that terrible chipmunk sound. I essentially want to try to make my male BG vocs sound like female vocs.

Here is the video that shows exactly what I'm aiming for. The trick starts at 1:18 and runs til about 3:10.

Basically, he slows down the song, sings BG vocs at his normal pitch, then speeds the song back up and pitch and tone are constant, but it now sounds like a female voice. And it is pretty clean in terms of artifacts and all. Really cool little trick I'd love to try.

If anyone has any ideas, please share.

IF you have a decent soundcard this will do it and keep the the samples in check. I have rme raydat and i can slow and speed the project up in real time live in cubase. Wonderfull
