Is there a way to get a convincing vari-speed tape vocal effect in Cubase. Think prince where he raised or lowered the voice by recording the track at a faster or slower speed.
Before you answer use vari audio or pitch shift, That always sounds like it comes with artifacts so I really DONT want to do it that way.
I am thinking something that might take advantage of the elastique algorithm but I don’t know how I would do it or where to start as I just want a pitch transposition and all the tutorials I have seen show tempo changes.
Please note: I originally asked this 4 years ago and got a good, albeit somewhat clunky solution from Alexis: https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?p=143696 I’m wondering if now that we are multi versions ahead maybe there is a better solution.
