What you can also do is:
- Open the Pool window.
- Find the sample you want to stretch
- In the Algorithm column, right click and select “élastique Pro - Tape”
- Close the pool window
- From your Nuendo tools in the toolbar, click on the arrow (Object Selection). This reveals more tools. Select “Sizing Applies Time Stretch”. Alternatively you can cycle through these tools by pressing the number “1” on your keyboard repeatedly until the tool is selected.
- Now when you resize a clip, it stretches the file as you want. Shorter and higher, or longer and lower.
You can make the “élastique Pro - Tape” the default algorithm in the settings. Open Preferences, go to Editing > Audio and there at the bottom you see “Default Warping Algorith”.
Once you have done this it is incredibly fast and easy to just stretch samples. You just hit 1 to get the stretch tool, then stretch the sample you want to the length and pitch you want, and hit 1 to get back to the selection tool. It’s easy and quick.
Hope this helps.
