How can I...


ging

Question

Sorry, I admit to being less than computer savvy. I have learned how to cut a song but I can't manage to speed up the song. I think I should be able to speed it up, then pitch the vocals back down so it doesn't sound like chipmunks. Any help would be appreciated!

Good question! I would have sworn it could be done in Sound Editor but I can't find it. I need to look at this further to see if I'm just missing it or not and will post back if I find something that will work.

The speed change is in Sound editor under effects> pitch but if you do too much with it, you get the chipmunks.

Try downloading Gold Wave's trial. You can speed up a song without changing the pitch. Pretty interesting. I've tried using Sound Editor to do this but the pitch change is too dramatic even for a small change.

Steve, I haven't tried it much but does the Pitch actually play the song faster? When I tried it, the time to complete the song was the same and it just sounded it was a tonal change and not actually playing the file faster.

I was also going to suggest Goldwave's trial.

You are correct. I missed that pitch is changed but not the length of the sound.

 

The only other way of doing it would be a long work around. Add the music to a color panel in VideoWave render it to a mpg2 file. Add it back in and speed up the video; render it to again to a mpg2 file and then extract the audio.

I actually tried that and it works but not worth the effort in my opinion. Probably other freeware out there to do the same thing easier.
