Is There Pitch Control Of Tracks In Toast 11.2

Question

Hello everybody, I am new to the forums but a user since I used Jam 6 to make music CD compilations using the crossover facility back in 2005 on a G4 and iMac. I have used T10 to make CDs for friends and the car several times and would like to see 2 new technological improvements. I just got off the phone today having googled a help 1800 telephone number since email doesn't look like an option. The person at a call centre in india was not familiar with the programme Toast Titanium (the help line information from the Toast site suggests that all technical queries will be dealt with "competently")). I can empathise with hcfreak, gaper1 and greybird in their discussion of unsupported support!! and with respect to the person I spoke with today in India, it is Roxio who are responsible for this attitude to unsupported tech support.

I have used Jam6 and the newer Toast 10 and been happy enough with their product except for my expectation of a 21st century update allowing with some manipulation of the tempo of one or both tracks been affected by a crossover. I enjoy using Toast but would like it to reach current standards by being able to share the finished work as a AAC or MP3 exported to iTunes as one long track ready for upload as a podcast. In T10 one can only burn the playlist to CD and re-import the CD to iTunes as a CD Compilation with all the interconnecting newly mixed tracks ready to pop into Garageband and line them up and share to iTunes. As an export to iTunes The new compression becomes one long seemless mix and you could toss in a few more and crossfade in Garageband, but that is quite time consuming. From a DJ perspective Toast is quite a quick and easy tool for making mixtapes, but as I say, for me the next step is Pitch control or tempo control over each additional track in the timeline. I don't believe that Roxio realise the potential of this programme. It costs a few hundred quid to get Ableton and a warp must be done on each track before you can affect a beat match segue. So I guess, here is my question; Does the new update 11.2 allow bpm changes to an mp3 or AAC file dragged into the work list in Toast CD burn. Regards to all of you, Zandra.

Toast 11 supports use of Audio Units to modify individual audio tracks. I thought thought was supported in Toast 10 as well. If you don't see the "AU" at the right edge of the Toast track window go to the Audio panel in Toast Preferences and turn on advanced audio mastering. Apple has a Pitch audio unit. I don't see anything that changes tempo. Maybe a third party makes an audio unit that changes tempo. Google for VST plugins and you may find something.

 

As for combining tracks into a single audio track for iTunes, this can be done by choosing Save as Disc Image in the Toast Audio window. This creates a .sd2f file that iTunes will see as a single audio track. You then would use iTunes to convert it to mp3 or AAC.

Thanks Tsantee, I'll try disk image save. Audio units not the solution for me, just wish to manipulate the audio wave to beat match and affect cross fade accordingly. I shall investigate the adv audio mastering toggle and see how it goes. All the best

Tsantee, Thank you for your suggestion for saving toast files as a disc image (never knew what this about) this is going to save me a lot of time wasting and messing with re-routing through garageband. Anyways, you have just reminded me about mindfulness and taking time to read all aspects of op manuals before charging into projects. Am very excited about the potential that Sound Designer II files will have on my efforts. Cheers. Z
