This is my first time here in the forum. I am a vocal teacher and i'm trying out the Cubase 7 Elements version to evaluate if it has all the features i need for my classes, one of the most important ones being the Pitch Shift, so i can change the key for some songs. In the specs table it has a yellow check mark (real time). The problem is i can't find the tool in the trial version or any explanation for the yellow check mark. Does anyone know how it works, if it works at all? Or is it some sort of add on that i will have to buy separate from the license? I find it strange that Steinberg doesn't explain this anywhere...
Thanks in advance!
Cheers and happy new year!
Hello, I have the full version of Cubase, so I don't know about Elements 7, but I would think that you could go about transposing a song 3 different ways in Cubase.
1. You could use the transpose track, which transposes certain tracks of your choosing to a certain key.
2. You could process the audio data with the pitch shifting process, which would alter the audio itself.
3. You could find a free third party plugin that would shift the pitch for you.
But the way what I would use is the transpose track probably.
In reality, if you are just trying to change the pitch of a song, you don't need a full digital audio workstation software to do that simple task. Just use something like audacity, which is free, and apply the pitch shifting effect to the selected portion of audio (the song).
Cubase 7.0.7, M-Audio Fast Track Pro, AKG D5 Vocal Mic, Yamaha YPG-235 Keyboard, Bose AE2 Headphones (I know, I know, it's better than Apple earbuds though), Windows 7 Home Premium, Acer 4736Z Laptop, 3 gb ram, 2.0 ghz cpu.
The biggest mark of amateur film production is a lack of attention to audio production.
