Elastique Pro (Time) Vs other algos - Timestretching

Anyone have experience with multiple timestretching algos?

Just shifting a stereo track by 10bpm using what I believe is the best algo within Cubase - the elastique pro time setting. Got to say its leagues ahead in quality over previous Cubase offerings.

Haven’t tried any other 3rd party ones though, like melodyne.

Is there anything out there, 3rd party, that is much better? Im looking for the best of the best (if there is something else).

Many Thanks,

yes, Steinberg´s Wavelab 8, “DIRAC 2.2 Timestretch algo” = wow!!

Thanks for the reply,

Thats pretty annoying its not included in Cubase 7 then :confused: How much better is it ? I had wavelab 5 and i always found myself just doing everything in Cubase anyway. Is it that much of a difference to justify a 3/400 quid purchase?

Odd, in my opinion the Elastique Pro sounds even better than Ableton Live’s Complex Pro algorithm.
I am quite happy with it ! :wink:

You may have already seen this, but there’s a listing of what other apps use midway down this thread: http://www.gearslutz.com/board/cubase-7-nuendo-6/819113-cubase-7-multitrack-warp-feature-question.html

Thanks for that, nice info. Guess Dirac is superior then…

"Here’s the list, so no need for speculation on the different stretching algorithms: (Reaper also licenced Zplane Elastique like Steinberg and Ableton, which in my opinion sounds the second best…after Dirac)
