reading the first page of this thread gave me a bad feeling in my stomach.
either people are intentionally reading it wrong to try and sound like they dont know what the OP is talking about; then giving nonsense “solutions” end “help” that just dilutes and further causes confusion.
or; people are just unable to baisc reading comprehension.
its quite obvious from reading the OP what he wants. he wants the same functionality of loading a sample into a sampler track; then playing keys higher up. that is effectively pitch shifting without time stretching.
Or, loading up the sample in GA; then increasing pitch from there. that is also the exact same thing. non-destructive linear pitch shifting (or more accurately simply speeding the sample up).
or offline processing > pitch shift without time correction. THREE GREAT WAYS TO DO IT, but:
that would indeed be very very handy (and it is beyond me why it is not a feature) to have on the infoline. From there; any “transpose” action is destructive and no matter how high you transpose; the time remains the same. This is not a transpose feature; this is a timestretch feature.
Transposing SHOULD ONLY speed it up, but it doesnt.
That is what OP was asking for; and it is completely insane how people did not get that until after the OP said the same thing a billion times. jesus christ.
