When I try to slow a file down without length compensation, pitch bend does the opposite. I’m on WL 9.025. Works fine in WL 8.5.
Quick test: I can’t find a difference.
Please make a screen short of the pitch bend window on both 8.5 and 9, so that I see the settings you use.
Well, I tried it on my home system and it works as expected. At work, if I try pitch bending and bring the slope on the the right down, it speeds up instead of slowing down. I’ll try a reinstall and hopefully it will be corrected.
The semitone range can be positive or negative. I guess you were confused by this.
