Re: What will become of the Repeater pitch stretching techology,I wonder
Well, to further clarify.. for me it's not that corrupted pitch
manipulation is bad, it's that I prefer it to be ONE texture in a
piece, rather than for it to become the overriding texture imposed on
every subsequent overdub...
If the algorhythm were applied to the playback and left the input
alone, I'd be happier.
